Wordless Wednesday: 2547 Hastings, Evanston, Illinois, 1962 and 2017

I superimposed a photograph from March 1962 of my paternal grandmother, Elizabeth Florence Massmann Pape (1902-2000) on the front steps of hers and my paternal grandfather Paul Robert Pape's home at 2547 Hastings Avenue, Evanston, Illinois, onto a present-day photograph of that triplex home, where they lived from about 1956 until about a year after Paul's death in April 1971:

Here's a more wide-angle view of the home, still with Nana on the front step, showing the second floor:

And finally, here's the view of the home as it looked on August 7, 2017.  Other than being painted red and the storm door removed, the front door appears to be the same, and the house number is the original sailboat design (that also appears in a 1956 photo taken on these same front steps).
