Those are fun pictures. I had some elderly friends born in the early 30s who remember that time. During WW2 the church was not allowed to have the temple lit up at night like most prominent buildings on or near the west coast. They were very happy when the war ended and the streets were again lit up at night.

These are great, thanks for sharing Moksha! I haven't seen that many long coats since zone conference on my mission!

Late 60's hats started to disappear. My grandfather wore his grey fedora until then. It was one of the few things I liked about him.

My first memory of Utah (I didn’t grow up here) was coming to Utah on a vacation to Lagoon. I remember it was the year of severe flooding and there were makeshift wooden bridges (I think) you could driver over some of the streets. Some streets were turned into rivers with sandbags.

I remember helping with sandbagging down near Dirk's Baseball Field pond and another time for Millcreek. This was efficient due to the volunteer spirit in Utah. Pretty sure there were also a few Mormons in the crowd as well.

Amelia's Palace (also known as the Gardo House to appease the other wives). This is where Brigham and Amelia could entertain out-of-town guests. Amelia had some education and was a good conversationalist. In his later years, Brigham enjoyed both her company and one of the young nubile wives.

Both Presidents John Taylor and Wilford Woodruff enjoyed living in this luxurious accommodation after Brigham's death.

Has anyone written about or documented the transfer of wealth of Brigham Young?

I’d be curious to know if the church assets and funds were co-mingled with Brigham’s personal assets. Obviously there’s a story their.

Or if his descendants received his personal wealth transferred down through the generations.

I think the Mormon leadership royalty payments probably continue to this day but nobody will fess up to that.

Fascinating to think about generational Mormon wealth.
