Beautiful

This looks to have been taken in almost the exact same spot and the same time of year and at the same time of day given the shadows! Frog Rock?

This is a picture taken probably 1914-5. It was of my mother and her siblings. I’m guessing the date from their birthdates, and appearance. The picture was supposed to be on a trip to North Ogden to see “the first airplane.” While the picture seems to be posed with more children than would fit, plus no driver, I am interested in knowing whether there is a record of an airplane landing in North Ogden to pin down a date. Newspapers.com has the Standard Examiner only from 1920. Surely there was no airfield there in 1914 or 1915?

Although their grandmother, Mary (Lake) Taylor was the first white child born in North Ogden, these children of George Bailey Taylor grew up in Farr West. The pony is theirs, but I don’t think this batch of children would be traveling alone all the way from Farr West to North Ogden. At any rate, it was a memorable event for them.

I would appreciate any ideas.

To me it doesn’t look like a functional wagon. Could be wrong, but it looks like a staged photo. Adorable children 🙂

At the airport in St George there are pictures and articles of airplanes landing in a field near the LDS temple. Big event for the people and even giving rides for a price. I believe it was in the same time frame.

By coincidence, last week I actually found reference to the Army Air Corps landing two planes at the Hot Springs in 1919. They stayed for two days, and the Utah-Idaho Central Railroad (the dummy line) ran special trains every 15 minutes) to the Hot Springs from Ogden for people to see the flying machines. There definitely was no airfield, but there were fields, and in those early days of aviation any open flat space was fair game for landing and maintaining a plane.

I have a picture of family members in front of an airplane. Early pleasant view

May 12, 1919

Does anyone have the names of those in the pictures?

Interesting that all the boys and teachers are wearing hats but not the girls.

Thank you for sharing such wonderful photos.

Great pics! Thanks NOHM. ❤️

Comment on Facebook Parley Shupe …

He and his wife's life sketch is a fascinating read, just like being there 100 years ago.

Near your old stomping ground Holly Woodruff Fuller? 🙂
