you can use urllib2 python module:

import urllib2
f = urllib2.urlopen('')
data =
f = file('nav_logo.png', 'w')

in your case, may be parameters are passed thru url to get a particular 
barcode image (http://myserver/myapplication/barcode?format=xxx&id=yyy 
etc. ...).
for authentication, if any, it needs a little more sophisticated coding.
