Joseph Ballif Jr. is my father. Tickets sold at Ballif’s store. Very interesting for me.

Loved this station and the Barkers. They also kept my kids bikes and lawn mowers running for free.

When we moved to North Ogden in 62, Wayne Barker became one of my dad’s favorite places to go to . Always bought gas there and other auto related repairs. I needed new tires for my car ( a 67 Mustang) but didn’t have enough cash to pay for them up front so Wayne and Verle let me pay on the time plan. Where else would you find such a place?

Mom would get gasoline at the Barkers service station. I can still hear her ask for Ethyl. My sister and I never missed a chance to go for a ride with Mom. After errands, she’d go to Pinkies to get us each a cone, then we’d go to Barkers where he would give us each a balloon. The best of memories!

Oh yes, great memories. Wayne was always there to help with a bike's flat tire or whatever repair was needed on the car. And of course a stop at the water fountain was mandatory! Don't forget Pinky's!

We always got gas there and had a drink from the fountain. He was a good friend of Dad’s.

What a great place! Riding my horse by they would ask me if she needed a fill-up. Awesome memories 😉

Awww... what good memories.

Loved Barker’s and the water fountain close by!

My Grandpa and Uncles worked there too. Grandpa was also the schoolbus driver. Iris "Ike" Jones. I have a box full of service invoices in my dirt celler. But I don't think any of them are fit for display. I used to stand on a rock that was placed in front of the stump for the little ones to get a drink. I'm 68 now, and still remember it was the finest water in the world.

The best place ever!!!

My Uncles, Wayne and Verle were the best! Even after my husband and I moved to Seattle, the Uncles were always ready with a bottle of pop for me when I visited! I loved them both so much, and miss them still! Wonderful memories!

Great memories of Barker Service!!

The would come to your home to change a tire. Love the Barker Service

They were my dads cousins. He was a North Ogden Barker. He was the owner of Chicks Cafe at 319 24th. Formerly the Big Wheel Cafe across from the old post office. He’s the one wearing the dark shirt standing 3rd from the left. These are his siblings.

I remember that little place so well. The nicest people in the world worked there.

This was a North Ogden institution. So many of us have great memories here!

Amazing how fun it was, sitting on the chair, just hanging out while my cousins worked (Tracy& Glen), uncles & Kenny would work and talk and they all seemed to know everyone who stopped or drove by. Remember the soda chest inside, you could get a cold bottle of soda for a dime! Anyone remember my uncle Wayne’s dog Charlie? Such a cool dog, carried around huge rocks instead of tennis balls!

Wayne was the best! We always loved going there and Dad loved it as well. Definitely a North Ogden institution!

We moved to North Ogden in the 70’s. Started buying gas at Barkers. One visit was all it took for the Barker Brothers to know our name. Both my wife and I were treated like life long friends. In an age where every other gas station on the planet made you pump your own gas the Barkers washed your windows, checked your oil and tires while topping off your tank. They ran the best “Service Station” up to the day they retired.

A big part of my childhood. Wonderful memories

I saw this! Wayne and Kenny and Was it Vern? I just sent it to Dixie!

Ken Wilson worked there. He was so nice did the whole service on your vehicle.

Loved that. He was such a nice man. Tracy Larsen worked there too!

Oh my gosh - I do. It was a mainstay for the area. Haven’t thought about Bakers in years. Brought a smile to my face and a giggle to my heart

Favorite place to go. He gave us gum and he always made every kid feel special. As a kid it was much more than a gas station. It where our friend worked.

North Ogden's Red Brick School (626 E. 2600 N.) was constructed in 1890 at a cost of $3500.00. It featured a bell tower and three classrooms. The population quickly outgrew the school and it was demolished and replaced in 1908. The entire student body is posing in front, grades 1 through 8. ... See MoreSee Less

Thanks for sharing this photo. I wonder if any of my Campbell ancestors attended this school. I need to visit this museum.

Beautiful building of yesteryear where construction materials would stand the test of time - except outgrowth.

I’m sure there were Randalls and Chadwicks also in this picture.

Love this.....why can't those wonderful old bldgs just stick around forever.

Sure there was a few Barkers and Chandlers

This is where my father went to school.

Love historical photos

Do you know what year this picture was taken?

My grandfather Joseph C Deamer could easily be in this picture, he was born in 1890 and grew up in North Ogden. The house he was born in is still standing!

Holy school marm

What a shame it was demolished.😒

Is this where the current Ben Lomond stake center bldg is now?

$3,500 in 1890 → $98,287.69 in 2019

That would be pretty cool still standing

I paid more than that for my first Dell desktop computer and accessories.
