Ogden in Weber County, Utah — The American Mountains (Southwest)
London Ice Cream Parlor
Among the earliest businesses occupying the ground floor were the Chicago Shoe Store, Bon Ton Restaurant, and T. Ashby Shoe Store.
What probably started out as a legitimate boarding house in the upper story, apparently degenerated into a common bordello not unlike the fifty or so others in the neighborhood. Known as the K.C. Rooms, the business on the upper floor was complimented by similar activities conducted in separate eight-by-eight foot frame “cribs” behind the Parlor along Electric Alley.
