YANKEE CLASSIC: House for Sale
Yankee Classic from April, 1950.
DEAR MANY READERS:
Thanks for your letter. For some months now we have been running, as you know, pictures and a story of some attractive house in these states. Naturally, this sort of story would not be as interesting as a similar story of a house actually for sale–one YOU could do something about. So from here out the Home Dept. will cover (YANKEE special staff photographer and writer) some house or small business or farm–FOR SALE–each month.
In this, YANKEE’s interest is altogether editorial as we have no desire to act as real estate agents. We make no guarantees the house won’t be sold before you get there, so we suggest you act fast if you like its looks. Short descriptions will be given each time, also of the town in which this house is located. Price, etc., will be stated as given to us. In each case we shall have been at the house, writing it up, photographing it, etc., but don’t take our word for it even then. Go see for yourself.
YANKEE will also be glad to hear from any of you who have properties for sale. If these appeal editorially, you might get a free write-up-you just might.
Yankee Magazine revisited this house sixty-years later for its 75th Anniversary issue. Pick up a copy of Yankee‘s September/October issue to read the story, on newsstands August 24, 2010.
