Due to structural problems, the Livermore Flagpole was removed Thursday, October 7, 2004.
The new one was installed June 17, 2005 (see photos)


View of the 4 cuts

Top section (71 feet up)

2nd Section (41 feet up)

3rd Section (11 feet up)

Loaded in the truck, this is the base of the pole, and the plaque.
This cut was not as clean, as the saw chain wore out half way through.


The flagpole from the new parking garage. 
This view was only available for about 2 weeks.


Looking up from the base of the flagpole.
The brackets held the lights.
The moon can be seen on the far left side near the top.
this photo was taken about 8:30am the day it came down.
