I recently ran across this ad in the June 30, 1946 edition of the Clarion-Ledger.
Attention! COLORED VETERANS
–Here’s The Home Buy Of The Year!
Pictured at left is just one of the twelve new homes that have just been completed!
Buy One Of These Bungalows Today–Move In Tomorrow!
Colored Veterans, here is your opportunity to buy a modern home under the liberal GI LOAN! Brand new bungalows with two bedrooms, living room, complete bathroom, ample closet space, modern kitchen . . . gas, electricity and water on the ground! All you are required to have is $100 cash for closing the sale, a job on which you are earning at least $115.00 monthly and be a veteran of the armed forces. Come early–it’s an outstanding and limited opportunity–because the first ones here will get the twelve that are ready!
A Salesman Will Be Available This Morning!
This morning from nine until noon there will be a representative on the grounds to answer any questions you may have and to close sales.
Drive out Livingston Road (by the Rotisserie), past the new Sears & Roebuck plant, on across the railroad tracks and just over the tracks on the right you will see a Roebuck Subdivision sign–here are these twelve modern homes!
Payments Only Approximately $29 Per Month Including Taxes and Ins.
Remember! . . . Only colored G.I. Veterans are eligible to purchase one of these fine modern homes.

We can follow the directions via Google Streetview and this is what we find.
Looking in all directions, I don’t see a house that looks exactly like the house pictured in the advertisement, specifically the centered porch, but I see several houses with a very similar form: side gabled, three bays across the front, an off-center door, and I’m going to assume that these are some of those “twelve modern homes.”
