Scope and content

File consists of photographs of staff and vehicles from Goodale Transport. Once located at 72 Napier Street and under the administration of president Edward Goodale, Goodale Transport originated with one truck in 1921 when Arthur Edward Goodale drove the single truck himself and undertook city delivery work. By July 1922, a second truck was added and by the fall of that year, out-of-town transporting began. Goodale Transport was incorporated in 1928 and, as business thrived, Edward Goodale became active in the Automotive Transport Association of Ontario. By 1936, Goodale Transport offered daily service between some eighty-two points using thirty motor units and nine trailers and, in addition to the head office in Hamilton, had branches in Brantford, Galt, Guelph, Kitchener, Woodstock, Toronto, London, Niagara Falls, Stratford, St. Catharines and Welland. The company had forty-nine employees, forty-seven men and two women. On March 1, 1936, Goodale Transport Limited moved into their new headquarters in the Northside Storage Building at Bay and Mulberry Streets.
