The advancements in advertising over the past century have been pretty mind-boggling. With all the bright lights, glossy pages in magazines, massive billboards on the roads and innovative techniques, it’s sometimes crazy to think it all started with companies painting the sides of buildings.
Many cities across the United States have chosen to preserve artifacts from their past, and Ogden is one of those cities, with many original advertisements that have survived over the years.
Each one tells a story about the hustle and bustle of Ogden throughout its growth.
After scouting out some of the old advertisements, I began to notice an array of murals all over the Ogden valley. I decided to investigate further and was surprised by how many I found.
How well do you know Ogden? Or better yet, how observant are you? Here is your chance to sharpen your detective skills. Each of the 20 murals featured can be found in Ogden (North and South). Some are more obvious than others, and some will only be found by the most diligent.
Be the first to find all 20 to win prizes and be featured in the April 22 graduation issue of the paper.
