That's my grandmother!

Very cool to run across this! Della (aka "Nannie") was my grandmother on my mother's side. She and Harry ("Boppa") lived in a wonderful Victorian house in the heart of McLean that was demolished in the mid 70s.

I've never seen this picture, so many thanks to whomever posted it! Got any more of the Farvers or Storms?

BTW, I grew up in a house on the cul-de-sac at the end of Olmstead drive. Our house had been a barn on the old Storm farm.

[There are four more photos here, here, here and here. - Dave]

Like a nymph

For some reason she looks to me like a wood nymph who has just paused for short time to regard us with a calm steady gaze.

Very pretty young lady indeed, and I love her lacy dress!

Storm's Rest?

I put the old Storm place here,,-77.198802&z=18&t=h&hl=en , behind the cul-de-sac on Storm Court, and just above the North end of Storm Drive. There's a large place at the South end of Olmstead drive that fits the bill. Larger than surrounding places with big trees on a large irregular lot.

Fully guessing here. Any local Shorpsters with insight? This might verge on stanton square's turf.

Beautiful portrait

What a nice looking lady! I hope her 82 years were good!

Harry & Della


A lovely gal. Nice to know she had a long, and we can hope, happy life.


I was immediately drawn to the one flower that's on the tree trunk. I wonder if it just happened to fall or if it was placed there.

[I bet it fell. Out of that bouquet of daisies she's holding. - Dave]

Someone has to say it

"Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi, you're my only hope!"
