Livermore Falls and Machias Maine

The area known as Livermore was settled in the 1770’s as Port Royal, and derived its name from Deacon Elijah Livermore, one of the first settlers in the area. The town of Livermore was incorporated in 1795, with a county line running through the middle based on the Androscoggin River. West of the river was part of Oxford County and east of the river was part of Kennebec County. The town of East Livermore was incorporated March 1, 1844, was set off from Kennebec county on March 31, 1854, to create Androscoggin County, and eventually came to be known as Livermore Falls Village.  From Livermore Falls home page

I would certainly invite you to my ETSY STORE  to see the many prints available.

Vintage Classic Car prints!

You need to keep and eye out as I begin listing these beautiful prints from the book, Cars of 1886-1930. These are some terrific pictures of the history making early years of Car making. The pictures and information about the early auto’s are wonderful.

I know you will want to pick out a couple pictures for your den or Man Cave! Maybe you have a son, that would like a group of 4, 6, 9 or maybe a dozen. That would make a beautiful wall.
