Don Hale of Coast & Country magazine contacted me about two E C Quayle paintings that are being offered for sale.  The owner is a keen Christian, who intends to use proceeds to help raise funds towards her missionary work in Ghana.
The paintings are from a private collection and the owner's great grandfather was apparently a good friend of the artist when he lived in Birkenhead. 
The grandfather worked in the shipyard and supported Quayle by lending him funds to buy paints in the early days. As a gesture of goodwill, the artist then supposedly gave him these original watercolour paintings. They were painted c1895-1902  The paintings pictured below: Laxey Glen and Sheep bridge
