The Timber Firm 2146 009.jpg
This Butters derrick crane dominated the skyline at Godalming Wharf in Surrey from its installation in 1940 until its demolition thirty or forty years later. The closure of the home grown timber sawmill and the purchase of sideloading forklift trucks to handle bulk imports of timber for the building trade made its maintenance uneconomic.

A rare photograph showing the beginning of the building of the Aldershot County High School in about 1910 and, behind the railings, some old buildings which were demolished to expand timber storage facilities for W.L. Edgoose & Sons Ltd.. The two story building was occupied at one time by a shoemaker and a large quantity of old shoes was discovered in the cellar during a shortlived redevelopment in 1990. The house itself was demolished before about 1960.

In 1938 the Government of British Columbia, Canada, invited representatives of the UK timber trade to tour the provinces's sawmilling industry. Walter Leeder Edgoose (18971-1957) who in 1892 had started trading in timber and joinery in his adopted home town of Aldershot, who in 1933 took over the former premises at Godalming Wharf, Surrey, of timber merchants Gridley & Spring, and who was to incorporate his company in 1939, was chosen as one of the UK timber trade representatives of the smaller business. This photograph was taken on Vancouver Island in August 1938. Walter Leeder Edgoose appears towards the centre of the front row, kneeling behind his white hat.

This photograph of the combined workforce of the Aldershot and Godalming timber yards was taken at Godalming in Surrey on 14 July 1934. In 1933, following the demise of Gridley and Spring, the manager of the Midland Bank in Aldershot, Hamshire, invited Walter Leeder Edgoose to take over the lease of the premises from the Godalming Navigation. It would be many years before the grandson of the founder purchased the freehold of the timber yard and later sold it for the construction of Sainsbury's supermarket.
