Friday's Faces from the Past: 2093 W. Lunt, Chicago, Illinois, 1952-3 and 2017

I superimposed two photographs onto a present-day photograph of 2093 W. Lunt Avenue in Chicago's West Ridge / Rogers Park neighborhood, where my father Fred Pape's family lived from about 1927 to about 1955.  One photo, from around April 1952, is of my father, home on military leave, his brother-in-law Frank James "Bud" Streff Sr. (1925-2014), and family friend Bill Doyle.  The other photo, from about 1953, is of Dad's sister and Bud's wife, Elizabeth "Betty" Marie Pape Streff (1927-2017), and her two oldest daughters, Rosemary Jean Streff Grandusky (1949-2016) and Marianne.

Here's the view of the east front side of the house from August 9, 2017:
