Entries 86 to 91

#86  Livermore History Mobile LHG
The Livermore Heritage Guild's HistoryMobile promotes a unique sense of Livermore by educating residents and visitors about the history of our city. The HistoryMobile exterior murals display the established way of life of the Livermore Valley. Inside, docents talk about the beginnings of Livermore, even before it was a city, all the way up to the present day.

The HistoryMobile visits third grades in all Livermore elementary schools and appears at local events such as the Farmer’s Market, Ravenswood, parades, festivals, and wine events. The goal is to educate the community and instill a sense of pride in our Livermore heritage.

Driving the HistoryMobile today is Jay Morris


#87  1919 Ford Model T Chemical Fire Truck
Here is the Heritage Guild's 1919 Ford Model-T Chemical Fire Truck

This tiny vehicle is Livermore’s first motorized fire truck. The Chief of Livermore’s Volunteer Fire Department, who was a mechanic in a garage on 2nd St, built this vehicle on a Ford Model-T automobile frame. It has been restored to operating condition by a small team of Heritage Guild volunteers led by Charles McFann.

Tim Sage is today’s driver and his passenger is Christine Thompson.




#88  Livermore Heritage Guild 1920 Seagrave Fire Truck
This 1920 Seagrave Fire Engine was Livermore’s first commercially built fire engine, purchased for the enormous price of $11,000, shortly after St. Michael’s Church burned to the ground in 1916.
The Seagrave is being driven by Tom Bramell & Irv Stowers.
Passengers on the Seagrave include: Bruce & Hans Shore; Jane Nebo & Anna Hutchson; Sean Sheffield.

Accompanying the Heritage Guild is David "Stilts" Volponi, a native of Livermore, whose family settled here in the early 1890's. David took his first steps on stilts on Sherry Ct. here in Livermore in 1971, and has performed in over 1400 places worldwide.
