Burnest Heard, Vancouver to Halifax. Toronto.

Portrait of Burnest Heard in front of the Wm. Rumsey Jr. Company in Toronto. Heard is pushing a barrel in front of him (around which are mounted two rubber tires), and around his neck wears a sign reading "Please help me across Canada." A second sign on the barrel reads "Burnest Heard is the world greatest lover on a walk accross (sic) Canada". He left Vancouver on June 1, 1938, passed through Quebec City on May 6, 1939, and reached Halifax on June 9 or 15, 1939. He then reversed his journey back to Vancouver (though traveling more slowly).
