North Ogden Historical Museum thanks for sharing.

James (Jim) Garner is my grandpa! How fun to see him!

My Uncle Lewis Brown, my dad's twin brother was killed in World War II.

Great picture!

“LDS church basketball championship? Really? That’s an actual real thing? And it’s worth reporting?

Allen Warren is my Grandpa. Thanks for sharing.

Is Harvey Chandler related to Cal Chandler, because they look just like each other?

Shanna Campbell I recognized some well known names in here!

Tyler Barker, you thought church ball was intense now…

What a coincidence. I was looking at basketball pictures of Clarence Randall earlier today. He is my great uncle. After serving a mission in Africa, he moved to Africa and set up a confectionary business along with a few other men from SLC. Not only did he bring ice cream to Africa, but he also brought baseball. Clarence lived in Africa for many years, then traveled the world and eventually settled on 12th street in Ogden. He never married but was well loved by his siblings and nieces and nephews.

Cars of the 1930's are fun to see.

That's so cool

Thanks Jenn - I picked Aunt Annie out very quickly. I wonder what ages the kids are??

Twice as many girls as guys.

My great grandmother is Mary Montgomery.

Here is a color enhancement. Not 100% but definitely neat!

Weird question but is this the school teacher from the first school that was built in north Ogden that is next to Frank’s auto?

Here is another thing I researched after seeing this. The grades don't work like they do now. 100 years ago, the school year was much shorter than it is now.

Annie hall

look at the picture close. These people could not be all 8th graders. There are older people and I think back then you had a schoolteacher teaching multiple aged students in one glass room. Some of the people look like adults to me.

The North Ogden Canning Company was constructed in 1901. The workers at the factory experienced the clang of machines, the clatter of cans, the aroma of fruit, and the shrill blast of the work whistle echoing throughout the valley. An early letterhead and a legal document from 1917 are pictured below. ... See MoreSee Less

Thanks for posting. I didn’t realize my grandfather was VP of the canning co.

My Grandmother worked there.

My grandma worked there

Interesting information! Thankyou

James Enoch was my great grandfather. His two sons LeRoy Randall, and Leslie Randall also owned the factory. Their brother Clarence worked there too. Another brother Earl was the president. He also ran the local bank in Pleasant View. My sister Susan ran the front counter for a few years, and my grandpa, Hilmar E Erickson was the secretary and owned part of the factory. He kept books for the business. My dad, Eldred Erickson worked there on and off from the time he was young and many of my siblings did too. I used to love walking through the building with my dad or my uncles and smelling the hot tomatoes. It was fun to watch the women who worked at the conveyer belt—they’d visit with each other while peeling or sorting. They were women from the community who came to work during different fruit seasons. I remember my grandma telling me that sometimes during the fruit season after the factory had closed for the evening, she and her siblings and their spouses—there were 10 children in James Enoch’s family—would get together at the factory and pull a big truck of fruit up to the dock and the whole family would work together to can all the fruit that each of their families would need during the next winter. The factory canned many different labels—Del Monte, Western Family, etc. their own label was called Utah’s Pride. Once when my dad was serving in the Aleutian Islands during WWII, he was helping unload all the supplies that had just come in on a ship. One of the cases of tomatoes was from the factory—he said it made him so homesick. He said the tomatoes tasted like home, and he keep one of the can labels with his things. The factory has so many memories for me. Thank you for featuring it today.

What school is this?

Dad (Charles Schmalz) your grandmother Chadwick

Great old photo! Thanks!❤️

See! The 4th of March celebration!! Wonderful memories through the years

What was the 4th of March celebration? I remember it but never knew what the celebration was. Does North Ogden still celebrate it?

Thanks for posting. My great grandma, Ellen Berrett, is in this picture 💗 I don't have many pictures, or know much about my grandparents & great grandparents because my grandparents passed away when my dad was young & Ellen was in a nursing home when I was growing up in southern Utah, so I seldom saw her.

Flora Deamer is the wife of my Granduncle.

Myrtle Barker is my daughter, Marci Smith's maternal great grandmother.
