You can get the best book ever written about
In 1993 Peter Crane wrote his Doctoral thesis titled "Glimpses of
Livermore: Life and Lore of an Abandoned White Mountain Woods Community".
It is probably the most extensive research project ever undertaken for the
Town of Livermore
As you can see from the Table of Contents shown below Mr Crane has left no
stone unturned in this remarkable piece of history. The work has
extensive bibliographical sources, a huge index and a good majority of the
thesis is devoted to interviews with folks who either lived, worked, or were
in some way associated with the abandoned town. These interviews also
diverge from Livermore to other aspects of life in and around Bartlett.
The book is copyrighted and can be ordered in various formats from
starting at $42. for a downloadable PDF up to
$108. for the hardbound book. Here is a link to the order form title search.

Railroads. We cannot thank him enough for all the material he has
donated and is scatterd throughout this website.
The identification on the first page, "A
