Meet the Author

The author, Lyle J. Barnes, JD, is a 43-year hostage of a history started in 1966. Trying to avoid boring historical subjects in the task of writing a master's thesis, he opened up a Pandora's Box of facts and data filed away in newspapers, police reports, and the memories of the people who lived the saga of Two-Bit Street. He has been quoted in history books and sought by professors and others to clarify and give enlightenment about the Street's colorful past. Kind of like a chronic itch, his need to share this revealing history has been permanently scratched.

    Interesting historical account

    Barnes isn't the kind of historian that writes a page turner, but he has written a good account of 25th street and everything it has gone through.

    very interesting

    I grew up in Ogden during the '50s. My father worked on the trains and I often went to Union Station to pick him up, with my mother. I was told that 25th street was a bad place and not to ever venture down there. We did however often eat at the Star Noodle Parlor.
    What I found interesting were the familiar names in the book.My dad's hunting partner and my mom's cousin were mentioned.
    It appeared that Mr. Barnes has made a lifetime projest out of this book, starting with his USU thesis. I enjoyed the storyline and the "walking tour" and plan to share the book with my older sister.
