Joe Ballif’s hamburger stand is pictured around 1935 during the winter. It was located near the intersection of 400 E. and Pleasant View Drive. The "Stump" (at the right) was placed nearby as an advertisement for the stand. Joe’s famous burgers were fried on a pat of butter and sold for five cents each. The Stump’s spring water is still free and pure! See MoreSee Less

From Joe's Obit, it looks like he called it Stump Hamburger and Fruit Stand. Earlier he owned Ballif Grocery. This is dated August of 1960.

Does anyone know when it was torn down or closed

I have a book on North Ogden That has this pic in it

I think my dad said I could be wrong but they just put mustard on them

I wasn't alive in 35 but I remember it in 40 and the stump is still there in 2020😃

Love this

Great post!

Yeah crazy huh?

Keith and my dad went to school together and were born the same year, definitely Virginia on the right

The little boy is probably my dad Keith Chadwick. The girl standing I would think is his sister Virginia Chadwick Jensen and the other young girl is probably Lenore or Fay Chadwick.

Beautiful people with a beautiful automobile.

I can see Mount Ben Lomond barely in the background! 😉

My daughter (12) is asking for ancestor stories about the Spanish Flu. I'm not finding anything. Just curious if you have anything. Chadwick & Shupe would be the two family names I'd be particularly interested in, but anything from North Ogden area would be awesome. Luella Chadwick & Parley Shupe are my great-great grandparents.

Burn all the Mormon crap

North Ogden phone service became available in the early 1880s, with only two phone numbers in the area, one at the Sidney Stevens residence and one at Hot Springs Resort. Eliza (Hall) Higgins was one of the early switchboard operators. Each call was connected manually by inserting a pair of phone plugs into the appropriate jacks on an exchange board. See MoreSee Less

The "dummy line" streetcar traveled from Ogden along 400 E. to North Ogden. It then veered off on Pleasant View Drive and angled up through the fields to Elberta Drive, and on to Hot Springs Resort. Some of the ground was cut away in these fields to make grade for the streetcar. We think the google maps photo shows the scar that was left from "the cut." See MoreSee Less

It's amazing how much snow they used to get versus what we get now! Even when I moved here in 1989 we got a lot more

Wish we still got snow like this

Love this

Our grandpa used to ride this into Ogden.
