"Luxury Features Galore"

Suburban Chicago, about 1957. The developer of the subdivision in which I grew up lists the modern features of the split-level homes. That Roper wall oven (and those birch cabinets) served our family for 34 years.

Thanks to my friend Mary for making this document available to us.

Paved streets, curbs, and gutters must be a big selling point in the Midewest,

The town where The Blonde grew up, has them only on some streets.
