Fred Taylor, Watercolourist, 1906-1987

Fred Taylor, (Frederick Bouchier Taylor)was a brother of Edwin Plunkett Taylor (EP Taylor), Canada's foremost financial Magnet.
Fred was as unlike his brother as day is from night. The Taylor boys got their start in life by inheriting a considerable family wealth from their father. 'The Welder' on the left is extracted from the Canadian Legion Magazine website. Please click here.
EP was the archetypal, diamond pin in cravat, top hat and spat wearing financeer.

Brother Fred, the artist, was as unlike his brother as one could possibly be. Fred was a communist.
