Edward Goodall
(1909-1982)

"His scenes were always places people would recognize or relate to. The Devonshire Hotel in Vancouver ordered a series of old English Inns and he began doing paintings in water colour of private homes. He recalled many amusing stories over the years, and this one was from the manager of the Devonshire Hotel in Vancouver, B.C.  An old lady would come to the lobby of the hotel on a regular basis and stand staring at one of his pictures of an old inn. One day the picture was found to be missing and the little old lady never returned. His long association with Canadian Stevedoring began and was asked to prepare a series of pencil drawings every year for their calendar. One year they felt that a switch to photographs would be appropriate but were soon to feel the repercussions. Letters poured in from all over the world wondering what had happened to the artist. He continued working for them until his death in 1982. He continually had to get out and promote his work and for the most part kept it commercial as that was where the money was. Ted was now traveling to many points across Canada and was toying with the idea of producing a British Columbia calendar. This came to be in the early fifties and his first series of west coast scenes in pencil was printed and which proved to be very promising and soon sold out. He continued with the pencil calendars until the late fifties at which time he replaced the pencil drawings with paintings."
