Frank Lloyd Wright's J. Kibben Ingalls house, located in the Chicago suburb of River Forest, Illinois, recently hit the market for $1.325 million — a fact that's notable not just because it's an amazing historic property by a famous architect, but because the listing itself features some fun retro photos of the home. It might be a slightly unconventional way to sell a home in 2015, but it's certainly a charming blast from the past.

The four-bedroom, Prairie-style home was built in 1909, and although it was updated in the 1970s, the home still features the original art-glass windows, sconce lights, built-in cabinetry, and oak floors. While doesn't note what specific year the photos were taken, the images give us a look back at the home in its earlier days. With cream carpeting, rich wood accents, and vintage-style furniture, the listing makes the house look more like a set from Mad Men than a home for sale in 2015. There are what seem to be a few current images of the home's exterior, too, including the screened-in porch, with sweeping views of the suburban greenery all around. Since this home is a piece of history in and of itself, the old-school pictures are not only fascinating, they're also a pretty fitting way to sell the house.
