Vintage ads for Marlen Grove

Vintage ad for Marlen Grove by Ralph HAverIt's possible that the rendering is showing what was expected of the back patio, as none of the homes have this elevation. We can tell it is a patio because there is a chaise lounge on it, there is no driveway, and the concrete is a bit fancier than you might do in a carport. It would be highly unsual at this time to advertise the back of the home rather than the front elevation as a selling point. It's possible that Haver was thinking of the patio-port concept at this time, which he would later execute in his Town and County Homes of 1955. They do feature scored concrete.Vintage ad for Marlen Grove by Ralph HaverVintage ad for Marlen Grove by Ralph Haver
