More stories about the Simard Blvd Underpass

Marty, the previous postings re the Simard underpass reminded me of my story in John Riley's book about the Third Street Gang swimming hole. The spot was very near the underpass and according to the attached map was app 1km or 2/3 of a mile from our house on Murray, via Marcotte's farm. It is amazing that such a journey could take us 8-9 yr olds almost all morning to do, taking in mind however that we were always on the lookout for both the big black bull and the vile-tempered red boar that used to free range the farm property.
