That house is STILL in a beautiful upper-middle class area suitable for raising children. This is what happens when a family is smart with their money, looks out for one another, sends the kids to tip tier colleges, and encourages competition from an early age. Three generations of upper-middle class. Pure success! And the photos were done by a man who knew what the hell he was doing! Home developed! Beautiful composition and color. It makes 1947 not seem all that long ago!

You are exactly right on all points.  Are these your family photos?

No. But very similar.

So do I.  Sadly, one doesn't see as much of it today.

Check the rest of that website. He has a family of his own (almost all grown now) and lives in a similar, but new, home across from a golf-course. Just like his Grandparents and Parents before him. It's amazing how they have maintained a lifestyle like that. Great 80's pics from his high school and university years there too! They never became poor, nor so rich it affected the ethos of the family dynamic. EVEN STEVEN!

He even made it through the suburban brat "punk rocker" phase in '83. :)  LOL!
