The old photo shows Shady Grove Road during the Blizzard of 1958, when over 14 inches of snow fell in the DC metro area. The picture was taken at the present-day intersection of Shady Grove and Blackwell Roads, facing north towards Key West Avenue. The house on right was the late 19th-century Allen Selby house, located on Windy Knoll Farm (Thomas Farm), which is today the Fallsgrove neighborhood in Rockville.
