Notes: Marcel "Bosco" Taillon became famous nationally for walking from Montreal to Windsor. It appears that he did this 3 times: in 1952, 1953, and 1954. He loved walking and viewed it as an endurance test; on back: Marcel "Bosco" Taillon, 38 years old, walking Montreal to Windsor, 598 miles; 3rd trip, 1954. Thank you - good luck!
