Born in Poland and raised in Montreal, Murray Goldman (1920-2013) opened a string of menswear stores in Vancouver, building on his prewar experience in the Montreal clothing industry. He quickly built a name for himself for his creative and humorous advertising campaigns. Beginning in 1956, a giant caricature of Goldman's face hung on the outfield fence of Capilano (Nat Bailey) Stadium, offering $100,000 to any hometeam player to send a ball through Goldman's smiling mouth. Luckily, no one ever did. But Goldman insured the sign just in case. Read more about Murray Goldman's antics and accomplishments in the 2015 edition of the Jewish Museum and Archive's annual journal, The Scribe.
