Photo of the Day......Entering Medford Oklahoma

Entering Medford Oklahoma on a hot 102F/39C July 1, 2011 afternoon.  Driving southbound on US highway 81 running along the old Chisholm Cattle Drive Trail.

Wiki says Medford was founded by Hobart Johnstone Whitley a land developer and member of the board of directors of the Rock Island Railroad.  I don't know when Medford was founded but according to Wiki it would have been sometime between the years 1870 and 1890.  Mr Whitley is better known as the founder of the famous Los Angeles California housing subdivision known as Hollywood.  It is said he and his wife named the subdivision while visiting during their honeymoon.
