  1. the only thing i can think of when i look at these photos is “where are the people of color?” it’s like they didn’t exist in the fifties. in photos at least.

  2. My soon to be Grandfather-In law is Don Hustad. He still lives in this home of which he designed in the 1940s. The house is still breathtaking and I feel very blessed that these pictures are not only featured in Life Magazine but they are of amazing family I am about to become a part of.

    I am the little girl in the photos. My father, Don Hustad, designed the home in the mid 1950’s and yes the home still stands and the creator still lives there- the photos are of our family and neighborhood friends. Fun to see again.

  4. what a lovely bit of history lesson, this home was featured in one of my architecture courses at college and I framed some of these images from Life magazine then; how wonderful to be united again and to know the home still occupied; such a gift.
