Ranch and Suburban Homes catalog by Garlinghouse- 50 cents in 1957. The cover features a colorful image of vintage house plan No. 9736: "Provision for outdoor living is only one desirable feature of this beautiful stone veneer ranch house. The exterior is maintenance-free Colorado pink stone with just enough siding to provide an interesting facade..." You wouldn't see the final statement in a contemporary write up: "...and a large room suitable for sewing and ironing."
