About These Photos
The majority of these photos are from the Livermore Heritage Guild collection of historical photographs which have been donated and collected over the years. The photos are available for viewing at the History Center, which is located at the Carnegie building on 3rd street between J & K.
The photos were scanned for the Livermore Heritage Guild by the webservant of eLivermore.com, who is a Guild member, and are displayed on this web site with permission. The photos are displayed here for the education and enjoyment of the community. Photos should not be copied off of this web site. For more information about photos labeled "Courtesy of the Livermore Heritage Guild", contact the Guild. Most of the unlabeled photos and photos labeled eLivermore.com are the property of eLivermore.com. See our photo policy about these pictures.
The photos are generally at a resolution of about 500x375 to allow for reasonable page loading times. The aerial photos are about 640x480 to provide a bit more detail. Many of the descriptions of the photos list what is written on signs, and other details. Many of these details cannot be seen on the pictures at the resolution presented. The information was obtained by zooming in on the high resolution scans of the photos.
The descriptions came from a variety of sources, including the photos themselves. If you spot inaccuracies, or have additional information about something in a photo, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
