Friday's Places From the Past: Dad at 2547 Hastings, Evanston, Illinois, ABT 1956 and 2017

I superimposed a photograph from about 1956 of my father, Frederick Henry Pape (1929-2017), on the front steps of the home of his parents, Elizabeth Florence Massmann Pape (1902-2000) and Paul Robert Pape (1896-1970), at 2547 Hastings Avenue, Evanston, Illinois, onto a September 2017 photograph of that same triplex home, where my grandparents lived from about 1956 until about a year after Paul's death in April 1971 (click on the photo to make it larger):

The photo of Dad was taken the same day as one I posted a couple days ago, and I think the same day as one with my mother in it too.

And finally, here's the view of the home as it looked on September 10, 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 1962 photo of my grandmother taken on these same front steps).
