Kind of my thought, as well. Though if you consider the rise in median income in the interim, it doesn't hurt so bad. My dad made about $14,000 per year in 1970 or so, which is doing pretty well for a middle class family. Our 7 (yes, SEVEN, though one was used as my dad's "shop" and the other as his "office") BR house bought in 1969 cost $54,000.
