Aerial Home Photography

Does anyone else remember aerial photographers selling bird's-eye-view paintings of people's homes door-to-door? It may just be a rural Midwest thing, but my parents bought one such painting of our family home about 20 years ago. With today's prevalence of Google Earth and similar software, the view isn't so special anymore. But it was once quite novel to have a salesman show up on your doorstep, randomly hawking a framed view of your home from the skies...

The particular "artwork" my parents have is a painting derived from an aerial photograph, though photographs were also often offered. Does anyone else have one of these relics from the days before such easily-accessed satellite imagery? We would imagine this isn't done anymore, is it?
