Félix Leclerc in Québec

I couldn't resist taking a shot of this shoe shop sign in Québec city, named after one of Félix Leclerc's most famous songs: 'Moi, mes souliers'. Leclerc died in 1988 in Saint-Pierre-de-l'Île-d'Orléans, where his ashes were scattered and where, in the local cemetery, a memorial stone was erected, where lovers of his songs leave their old shoes.

A representation of Leclerc on a huge mural, La Fresque des Québécois, in Vieux-Québec. A link below is to a rather strange clip of Leclerc singing the song, plus another to a former post I made on Leclerc:
