Have you ever wondered who designed the historic buildings that make up Ogden’s skyline or other iconic parts of Ogden?

Today in Monday Memories we take a look at two architects (Leslie Hodgson and Eber Piers) who helped design the face of downtown Ogden in the early 1900s. See pictures of the buildings and even the blueprints they created to make what we now call the “historic“ parts of Ogden.  

Each Monday you will see an installment of a time machine of photos from the good old days. Do you have local photos from the 1900s to share? Send an e-mail to visuals@standard.net with the subject titled "Monday Memories" and we may use it in an upcoming installment.
