Those Places Thursday - Then and Now

Jan Iverson's First Home

My father, Jan Iverson, was born in Los Angeles, California in 1936.  This is a picture of his first home.  It was built in the 1930’s.  His family lived there until 1946.  I shared this picture, as well as the 1940 census of my dad and his family while living at this home, in my post I Found Clark Gable's Mechanic in the 1940 Census!

Well, I just found another picture of my dad’s first home that I didn’t know I had!  This time the photo was taken in June 2004.  What a difference a few decades make, huh?  And what’s even more special is that my dad, who passed away in 2009, is standing in front of his old home.  Definitely a special find for me!

  1. A great find and yes, what a difference a few years makes. I bet your dad couldn't believe the changes, either.

  2. The landscape in the first photo is so sparse it almost looks like farm country. I had to look hard at the second photo to see the original house! How fun to have both photos. Thanks for sharing them.

    1. I agree Nancy, it really does look like farm country in the first photo. How things have changed! I also love that old car parked to the left in the first photo too.
