 Rue Pollack in “Haut Sainte-Foy” is where Horace Philippon’s immense apple orchard was located along side of the equally large Pollack orchard. 

Rue Philippon is named in honour of Horace Philippon (1900-1956), who was born in Saint-Évariste-de-Forsyth in the Beauce. He studied at the Séminaire de Québec then at the law faculty of Université Laval. He was admitted to the Bar in 1925 and practised law until his death.
