Hi! Can anyone please help me find older housing tract brochures? I am writing a retrospective book on the American tract home. Thanks much! BT

Hi Bryan,

Don't know if you have already passed your deadline and/or if anyone contacted you offline. However, if you are still looking for old brochures etc., drop me a line at eichfan at rawbw dot com and perhaps I can help you out.

Cheers.

you would be better off collecting House & Home magazines off ebay. House & Home was a magazine from '51-'74 for both builders and architects. ads and articles will be much better than hard to find brochure with fluffy ad copy.

(s)he browses lottaliving.com and I think (s)he has a bigger collection that just what is on his/her photobucket album

I think these are mostly so. cal./orange county/from the 70's

might be a possibility

Wishing for modern home.
