What? Time Magazine was his first try?? Or is that Tim Horton on the cover of Time??

Lots of images... but no clue as to where they were taken, what they are... or anything. What are we supposed to be guessing at here?

No mention of him ever being Man/person of the year. Picture is a fake.

Selling hamburgers/food/beverages.

Hamilton, On.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tim_Hortons
It was founded in 1964 in Hamilton, Ontario, by Canadian hockey player Tim Horton and Jim Charade, after an initial venture in hamburger restaurants.

EDIT:
Correction, the hamburger joints started in North Bay and Toronto.

http://www.theglobeandmail.com/incoming ... le4283745/
They opened hamburger joints in North Bay and the Toronto area, but the business fizzled.

Horton wanted nothing to do with donuts and wanted to continue in burgers.... till a Quebecker finally bugged him enough and persuaded him to try selling donuts. :p
