Rue Thomas-Pope is located in the Les Rivières district of Quebec City, north of Boulevard Bastien, between Rue Maurice-Proulx and Rue du Foyer.

This street is named in honour of Thomas Pope, the 10th mayor of Quebec City, who was born to Scottish immigrants in Prescott, Upper Canada (Ontario), on October 16, 1825. He was sent to Scotland at an early age to be educated, and after his return, he became a lawyer after articling under Jean-François-Joseph Duval, who later became Chief Justice of Quebec.
