Do you wonder what Livingston looked like in bygone days? On your next visit to Livingston Library, browse the photo exhibit in the display case. “Picturing Livingston, Images of the Early Days from the Livingston Library Local History Collection,” will give you a peak of the township from a hundred years ago, and even earlier.

          As part of the Bicentennial celebration, many items from the Local History Collection will be on display at the Library or other locations throughout the year.

          “Picturing Livingston” includes reproduced photographs of cows grazing in Canoe Brook, family farms, and fishing in the Passaic River. DeCamp horse-drawn coaches provided public transportation, although unlike today’s buses that run on gasoline, the horses ran on hay!

          Harrison’s General Store is also featured. Amos W. Harrison was the shopkeeper and served as Postmaster for several years as well. Official town meetings were held on the second floor above the store. Photos of homes of prominent residents whose names are still recognizable today – Force, Squier, Teed and Ely – are also on display.

          There will be more photo displays throughout the Bicentennial year, along with seasonal and community displays curated by Reference Librarian Archana Chiplunkar.

February 8, 2018

ATLANTIC CITY, NJ - Not a week goes by when a tale of heroism and bravery on the part of firefighters is not told. For them, running into a burning building is as natural as running out of one is for the rest of us.

The problem is that in my deluded head, I can see actually see myself standing atop the podium.  I am wrapped in a puffy designer ski coat with a huge piece of bling slung around my neck ...

In the Driver's Seat

Honey, I am going to take the Roadster out for a quick spin around the sun. I’ll be back in a few million years.

 

That’s nice dear. While you are out, could you pick up a gallon of milk?
