Photos from 1946, 1985 and 2012. How I wish we still owned this house. It's not being well maintained. To give you an idea how the values in real estate changed from 1944 to 1947, my dad bought it for $4000 and sold it for $8000. As far as I know, there was no realtor involved. The buyer came to the house with cash and my dad said, "Let's go to the bank." Maybe he wanted a witness.
