Harm Peery Chases Down S-E Fotog!

Ogden’s history doesn’t get much more fun than Harm Peery, Ogden’s “Cowboy” Mayor and resident lovable crook. Peery, who was mayor several times in the 1930s and 1940s, was booked into jail often, mostly for alcohol or gambling violations at his bar, The Old Mill. He winked and nodded at crime in his town, figuring anything …

Matthew Browning: Fireman, Burglar chaser!

Matthew S. Browning died a wealthy and respected banker in Ogden, but he started out having to scrabble his livelihood just like anyone else, hoping someone would buy stuff in his shop, dealing with shoplifters and chasing away burglars.  But from the beginning he was civic-minded, involved in his community. Matthew and his brother John …

MS Browning, the “forgotten” brother

Ogden resident Steve Lindquist packed Union Station’s Dumke Conference room Tuesday with a talk about Matthew Sandefur Browning, and right now you are saying: “Who?” Everyone on the planet, pretty much, knows Matthew’s brother. John Moses Browning is the guy who invented all the guns that bear the Browning name, or so most people believe. …

Willie Moore is History Well Preserved

Willie Moore is/was one of those Ogden institutions that needs to be preserved, but of course humans have a way of getting older on you. Which Willie did. Over the years, both when I worked at the Standard-Examiner and later, I watched Willie’s sometimes painful progress through life, getting older and more fragile as they …

Old Ogden High Yearbooks Show A Different World

By Annie Roe Union Station Archive Blog Last week, I found a small collection of Ogden High yearbooks while exploring the archives. Well, they’re not exactly yearbooks. There are 4 of them, from the years 1907, 1909, 1911, and 1936. The official title written on all of them is Classicum. In fact, the only one …

The amazing but quiet people among us

Union Station’s many volunteers look quiet, maybe quaint, even eccentric at times, but they’re amazing people when you scratch the surface. For example, consider Terry Curtis, who sits at our lobby information desk several days a week. He’s a smiling, happy guy who makes jewelry out of sea shells and squashed pennies from the penny pinch …

Veterans Day Harkens To Union Station’s Critical War Role

I spent Saturday taking pictures of the Veterans Day Parade in downtown Ogden — the parade was revived in 2006 and has become a fixture in the city ever since. Union Station didn’t play a role in this year’s parade — but that’s how it works. You help win the war, you move on, you …

Displaying a very old love affair with a Hudson

Alan Stockland was 15 when he met his first love, an older woman, 20, glistening and shiny. It was an on-and-off relationship. He had her for a while, then let her go, then got her back. And now he has her on display here at Union Station, so he can come and see her any …

Old Ads are More Fun than Old News

By Annie Roe Union Station Blogger Today’s archival treasure is newspaper clippings from the 1920s! The newspapers are documenting Charles Lindbergh’s famous flight, but that’s not the first thing I noticed. Flipping through these papers, the ads immediately stood out. For starters, they are everywhere. I mean, there are ads in today’s papers, but they …
