Historical Photos

 


Photo Courtesy of the Livermore Heritage Guild.
1889 drawing of Livermore.
Blacksmith Square in just below center, where the smaller of the buildings marked "63", and the tiny building with smoke coming out is located.
"63" is labeled as "Livermore Warehouse Co. Warehouses"
Only the SP railroad tracks existed at that time, which are south of Blacksmith square.
The WP railroad tracks (at the current track location) was Oak Street at the time, which is visible at the bottom right corner.

Blacksmith Square is in the center.  It is V&G Muffler at this time.
The SP railroad station is on the far right, about a third of the way from the top.  Most of the building is the freight portion.
