The O'Brien farm in Savage88 viewsFrom Will Williams:

I am quite sure the photo is of the O'Brien farm in Savage. It makes sense it would be in Betty Sodomka's photos since her mother was an O'Brien. My Dad would always take us to pick wild plums along their driveway which entered from highway 13-now CSAH 27.

I also hunted ducks back towards Mccolls Lake which their land abutted about where the ELC is now. The three O'Brien boys were quite an interesting trio. Frenchie, Ed ,and Tom.
