Glen Taxi

_ Saint-Henri le cinq septembre we7-0441 glen's taxi

Glen Taxi originated in the early 1950s and disappeared in the late 1970s. The company was named after the Glen Yard located west of Saint-Henri, on the edge of Notre-Dame- de-Grace. Listed in the Lovell directories from 1951 to 1978. Initially at 4635 West Sparks, and then at 5010 Notre-Dame West.

The company mainly served the Saint-Henri and Petite Bourgogne districts. Their telephone number was WE7-1441 (937-1441). The photo comes from a documentary filmshot for the NFB in 1962 by Hubert Aquin.

My cousin, Roger Mailhot drove for Glen Taxi back in the day.
