There's a brand new miracle in family transportation that makes all this possible. Go by air!

Seattle says, "Come aboard!"

Any sunny Sunday in Seattle, there's a traffic jam. As elsewhere, families fume and fuss while engines heat up and steering wheels are spun hopelessly. But this differs from the bottlenecks in Duluth or Denver or Darien in one important respect: these embroiled vehicles are pleasure boats, not automobiles, Their jockeying for position in the locks, which filter water traffic between Puget Sound and Lakes Union and Washington, is only a symptom of a fever which affects the whole character of the city, determining not only what the half-million residents do with their weekends, but the places they live, even the wording of their daily conversation.

As for marriage, according to the propaganda, this is a dull business.

A traditional approach to modern planning

Large picture at left eloquently expresses the aims and accomplishments of this house. First note the refreshing openness of the over-all scene. Think how much it would lose if the window wall overlooking the back yard were blank; if the fine-lined iron railing were walled- in, or if posts defining stair well to lower level were a solid wall.
