I admit, I am cheating this week. But I had to share this Blog from Ogden's Historic Union Station. The Blog is about Negatives of pictures. But it tells of the day a street car ran into the Broom hotel. No deaths, no horrific body smashes. Just a streetcar run a muck. Enjoy!!!
The Union Station Library is a fantastic resource of Ogden history, Train history and the Union Station history. Check out the Station and it's museums sometime, Especially the library.
