Welcome to Downtown Livermore


Growing up in the Bay Area and living here most of my life, I had never ventured to Livermore. It was one of the few places that I had really never been. But, I was able to spend a whole day there recently in the Downtown area and though it was a nice place to spend some time:

A place to beat the heat
Another fountain
Loved this clock Downtown
One of the little plaza's
People enjoying
Inside one of the little shops

This building was built in 1875 and was the Town Hall, jail and firehouse from 1905 to 1957
Got to love it
Downtown might have gone upscale but the seedy Donut-Wheel is still there-Great Donuts
And I love the street art:

Too Funny

Lawrence Nuclear Lab is located in Livermore
This was cool
Livermore is still a great mix of the old and the new. Hope stays this way.

  11. I'm always totally intrigued by your photos. Why on earth do they cal it Livermore I wonder? I love the building that they had all the towns municipal functions in. Do children ride that horse or is it just a statute? It's awesome. Man, I'd be like a kid in a candy store in that town. It's truly awesome. I bet you have a lot of scrapbooks don't you? Thank you so very much for sharing my friend. Another very fine informative Post.

    1. After Robert Livermore. He was the second non-native American to settle the area. It was from a land-grant from Mission San Jose.
