Dutcher's Hardware Area
This spot was originally Dutcher's Hardware.  The McLeod Building was where the Bank of Italy Building is now.
  When the McLeod building was torn down in 1921, a small portion remained.
Livermore Cyclery was in this remaining portion of the McLeod building and Dutcher's Hardware.
These buildings were demolished on September 20, 2004


This image appeared in the Livermore Herald Midwinter Edition of January, 1896.
The McLeod building is to the left.

Taken May 17, 2003.  Dutcher's is the building on the right.  It and the middle building are Livermore Cyclery at the time of this photo.
Both buildings were torn down on September 20, 2004.  Livermore Cyclery is now on East First Street in what was the Kamps Furniture building.
This photo appears on the eLivermore.com postcard.

Similar view to the photo above after the Livermore Cyclery buildings were demolished, and the steel frame of the new buildings was built.  2/4/06

This angle is more in line with the post card photo.  10/22/06
