Star Noodle – Ogden, UT

The Star Noodle on 25th St in Ogden UT has been a favorite of mine for quite some time. I once stopped in and talked to the owner who told me the restaurant was opened in the early 40’s by his father & uncle. They were both Japanese and opened the restaurant as Chinese to avoid any problems that might have occured because of WWII. I understand that the sign is now gone.

The amazing things about this sign is that it was 3-D, not just a flat two-sided sign. The fire/tongue was animated and the eyes flashed. The number of colors and the shear size of the sign was staggering. I hope that it can be restored and displayed somewhere soon.

This old rusting arrow is located (if it hasn’t fallen down yet) on Northbound Hwy 13 just south of the first Bolivar exit.

Brooks Fabrics – Bountiful, UT

I stumbled upon this one while I was looking for a thrift store.  If I remember correctly, Brooks has been in business since the 50’s and it’s located at 220 N Main in Bountiful, UT. I was very happy to get these photos right at dusk. I snapped these in Jan of ’08
