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 …

OGDEN CHRISTMAS VILLAGE A LONG TRADITION

By ANNIE ROE UNION STATION BLOGGER Christmas is just around the corner, and Ogden has been getting ready since November. You can see lights downtown, trees in windows, and holiday decorations wherever you go.

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 …

The long and wide reach of Matthew S. Browning

Recently the Standard-Examiner ran a story about a local historic home for sale that might be — the sellers weren’t sure — connected to the Browning family? Sure enough: Carolyn Rich Rasmussen, a descendent of Matthew Sandefur Browning, wrote the paper, giving the entire lineage: Her uncle, John Franklin Ellis, who was married to Matthew’s …

Station Cars Kick Automotive Butt at Peach Days Show

One of the hardest working volunteers at Union Station is Steve Sherwood, who maintains our Browning-Kimball Car Museum collection of classic wheels. It is a labor of love, but also a lot of work. It is not uncommon to find Steve struggling with an old fuel pump or radiator because, despite their classic states, and despite …

Saving Irene Woodhouse

Found a fun news clip about Irene Woodhouse today. Or, more accurately, by Irene. Irene was a historian in Ogden who, for many years, wrote a regular column in the Standard-Examiner called “Ogden Anecdotes.” They were stories about the past, as seen from the 60s and 70. We do stories about the “good old days” …
