Queen Elizabeth? Or -- ??

Hi all,
This is the first of a series I'll be posting in an effort to ID the roses that came with our house. We've lived here since 1986, but only now do I have the time & inclination to find out what is growing in my front yard.
I think this is Queen Elizabeth. It's a very tall bush -- over 5' -- but the flowers aren't arranged like a grandiflora's -- more hybrid tea-ish. The pictures show the bud and the open flower.

I don't think this is QE. It's too cool a pink (more blue in it). QE is a very warm pink (more yellow in it). It's very difficult because there are SO many pinks out there but this could be Perfume Delight or Pink Peace too.

RE: Queen Elizabeth? Or -- ??

It has a very mild generic-rose scent, so I don't think it could be anything with "Perfume" in the name. I'm checking Pink Peace on HMF.
The house itself goes back to 1949, but it was remodeled extensively in the mid-sixties and I think it's more likely the roses date from then.

Not a qe I'm staring at mine now your foliage is wrong

I thought about 'Pink Peace' too, but as I recall it's strongly scented.
