Days of glory!

I was at the game also. That was the game that some Ogden High students met at the McDonalds across the street from the school, when it was on Washington, and then tried to start a fight with Weber High students. As I recall the OHS students trashed a Camaro since the WHS students wouldn’t/couldn’t come out to fight. I’m embarrassed to say I was a student at OHS that year. No I wasn’t involved in the fracas.

What new book?

I remember the chant: “chug-a-lug, chug-a-lug, first the ‘Horse, then the ‘Jug’”. The Horse, referring to the “Iron Horse Game” between Ogden High and Ben Lomond High.

If this was the 68 season , and the 69 grads --it was 20-14 Weber--big fight and they made OHS forfeit the rest of the season - last 3 games --If this is the 69 season -70 grads - OHS won 14-7 ---it looks like Ogden stadium , which wold be a home game for OHS --and the 69 season ---

Best game ever!

I was at this game!

I was on the team, did not play however

So darn much fun such great memories ♥️

Great post! Great memories. Thanks!

The Barker Service building is pictured in the 1930s, with the notorious Chick Chick Inn entrance at the right. To the left of the building is the North Ogden Mercantile which later became the North Ogden Post Office in 1961. Isn't it interesting how a single stop sign sufficed at the intersection of 400 E. and 2600 N.! ... See MoreSee Less

Can i just out in a plug for the recently-published North Ogden history book?? It is fabulous—full of pictures like this one. A must-have for all of us with ties to the “Old North Ogden”. I believe you can purchase the book at the North Ogden Historical Museum and the City Office Building. It really is so well done!

Used to square dance in the basement when I was about 8 - 1964-ish?

Love this. Mr Barker always had a stick of gum for us!

Can we get a good copy of this picture?

Why was Chick Chick Inn "notorious"?

Years ago I took Wayne Barker to a Utah Jazz game as he had never been to one, and he talked all the way down and back about the "Good Ole Days". My favorite story was about a man that came in and bought 25 cents worth of gas and after Wayne had checked his oil, tires and washed his windows, the guy took off.

Sorry, I pushed enter, so Wayned jumped in his car and followed this guy to his house, but he wouldn't get out of the car. Finally Wayne got him to roll down his window just enough to talk to him and he promptly punched him in the nose and went back to his gas station. Wayne was an amazing Baseball player and one tough guy.

In high school (1967-69) we’d stop at Barkers and get 25 cents worth of gas. That would give us plenty for the whole weekend

Wonderful history and many wonderful memories!

My wife’s grandfathers hamburger stand was close to Barkers and the stump, his name was Ballif .

My Aunt Ruby-RIP lived directly south-the pines you see were in her front yard! Mrs. Verl Barker!!

I remember it well. Wow, have things changed in my lifetime!

Do many good memories. I want old north ogden back to. Thanks for sharing.

Or how an interstate freeway can make a stop sign obsolete Ha Ha Such great images. Thanks

I still remember that building and the original stump

I remember all the times going with my dad to Uncle Wayne’s for gas and hearing my mom warn me “don’t you go near “That Chick Chick Inn”!!!

Thanks for sharing! I’d enjoy that book!

Always stop for gas...kept a quarter so I knew I had enough to get home...Mr Barker worked on my car...was so funny and kind....and the water pipe close by is still the best, sweet water

Miss the old North Ogden

I grew up in North Ogden we always got our gasoline there! Thanks for the memories!

I really miss barker service, used to stop there for Cigs When I was a senior in high school

It was a hand full of jelly beans he would give us!

Nice photo, brings back some good memories

I remember going to Barkers for gas and always stopping at the spring for a drink. Until I was 5 we lived just up a couple of houses. And the little post office next door. I don't remember anything about the Chick Chick Inn

I remember Mr. Barker's place!
