Name of creator
Edward Goodall, born in 1909, was a Canadian artist who spent much of his artistic life in the Vancouver Island area. During his early professional years, he produced pen-and-ink and pencil post cards, largely of scenes of Vancouver Island. Two of his first large commissions in the late forties and early fifties were a series of drawings of the pulp mill at Powell River and paintings for the C.P.R. ships. His scenes were always places people would recognize or relate to. He made contact with the Illustrated London News and it quickly commissioned him in 1955 to prepare a series of drawings on the new Aluminum smelter project at Kitimat. This led to many other drawings for the publication, including a series on education facilities in Canada, scenes for British Columbia's centennial celebration in 1958, and the Royal Canadian Navy. He died in 1982.
