Born in Victoria but raised in Alberta, Gold came to live in Youbou, B.C. in 1934. His pictorial history of logging on Vancouver Island, Logging As It Was (Morriss Printing, 1985), shows his skill as a professional photographer and ranks as one of the first comprehensive studies of B.C. logging. Gold died in 1992.
