In 1910, Medford had more automobiles per capita than any town in the world, and in 1923, it straddled the world’s longest paved road. Told through photographs, facts, and anecdotes, the story of the hometown of film and radio stars Pinto Colvig and Ginger Rogers, as well as sports greats like Dick Fosbury, Bill Bowerman, and Kyle Singler, is a captivating read.
Highlights of Medford:
· Features more than 200 vintage images from public archives and private collections
· Showcases the 1959 and 1960 visits of then Senator John F. Kennedy and Jackie Kennedy
· Pictures some of the unique architecture that graces the streets of Medford such as Elks Temple and the Phipps residence
