Motifs of Ogden Utah

Ogden lies about 40 miles north of Salt Lake City and is home to a surprising array of Cycling and Sporting Corporates.

These include the parent company of Mavic, Salomon and Suunto, QBP and Scott’s western distribution buinesses, Descente and of course EDGE Composites which has its Head Office and US manufacturing here. Lots of interesting stuff happening in a rapidly expanding company.

For the Cowboy Movie lovers you might know of Ogden as Junction City and it was once one of the must lawless towns in the West and Jesse James said he wouldn’t go there! 25 th Street is the historic centre of the town with the mountains at one end and the railway lines at the other.

The streetscape is like Mayberry from the Andy Griffith show and there are lots of almost cliche like images from the old guys sitting outside hotels all day to “two bit” bars.

Drinking alcohol is not the problem you might expect – just weak beer and some restrictions on where you can purchase and what you can buy at a bar vs at a table with food.

Picked up a couple of Schwinn frames from 1930’s and 40’s.

Below are some iphone snaps from walking around. What is it with photographers’ names here?
