Hallo billnale

Das Bild gefällt mir, like

Auf meinen Reisen durch Californien konnte ich schon mehrmals diese hübsche Stadt besuchen. Ich bin sehr gerne dort.

Herzliche Grüße aus Deutschland, Lisbeth

Hallo billnale

Vielen Dank für den Tip, es ist tatsächlich Del Valle-See. Zuhause ist man dann manchmal unsicher was die richtige Position betrifft.

I lived just up the hill from here through the 60s and early 70s. We always referred to it as "The Tack Shop" as that was its function when I lived there. In the winter we would sled down the hill and end up right near there. On a trip back several years ago I noticed the water inlet (on my photo) and assumed that it must have been a mill, but did not know the history.

Wonderful captures from Livermore, my husbands hometown :-) Love all

The buiding on the right used to be a auto repair garage and machine shop. Look closely when driving by at the faded signage painted on the bricks. When the decades of ugly paint covering the bricks were removed, these original signs appeared ... and it was decided to retain the old bare brick facade without repainting. On the north side, notice the star washers and bolts to hold the building together, an early means of earthquake proofing!

Listen for the bells. The crosses are NOT a cemetery, but an outdoor contemplative walkway, open to the public, listing the various "stations of the cross" of the final day before Jesus was crucified. The original wooden building burned down and the congregation decided a fireproof building would do better! Hence the 1700's Mission style architecture for a modern building.

Managed by the Livermore Heritage Guild, the old beast visits third graders through-out the area and the Living History Day at Ravenswood.

One of the original Fire Houses for two trucks is attached on the left side - now a restaurant.

Home of the Livermore Heritage Guild and Art Gallery - Originally Library, donated by Andrew Carnegie, built using locally produced bricks. The large white flagpole on the Southeast corner came from the main downtown flagpole during downtown renovation.
