Time Travel Through the Digital Local History Archives

Are you interested in taking a glimpse into what life was like in Livingston years back? In the Livingston Public Library’s digitized local history archive you can view snippets of Livingston history through year books, digitized books, and copies of the Tribune dating back to 1929. 


So let’s go on a journey back into the past through the archive’s digital time machine and check out what was going on during the week of November 21, 1929.  Like many of us, Livingston residents were planning their Thanksgiving meals. Here you can see what Thanksgiving advertisements looked like during this time.

And just like how stores advertised the sale of Thanksgiving trimmings, local residents also advertised their gatherings. Through theses archives you can also take a glimpse into what social gatherings looked like 91 years back.

So go ahead and explore the local history archives and tell us in the comments below, what have you discovered?

-Jessica, Adult Services & Acquisitions Librarian
