Albéric Stanislas, ° 2.5.1843; + 22.5.1897. Textile manufacturer and, from 1866, joint owner of the spinning mill "Linière de Courtrai". Landscapes, urban views, architecture of the Courtrai region, reproductions of his family's art collection. In 1863 and 1864 he made stereoscopic views of Ypres, Bruges and Damme. His stereos (about 200) bear an ink stamp "G.D." set in an oval. This probably stands for Goethals - Danneel, after his mother's maiden name. Treasurer of the "Société Photographique de Courtrai". President of the Courtrai Chamber of Commerce. Collection of negatives in the Broel Museum in Courtrai. The "Letterhuis", Antwerp, holds letters written by Goethals to the Flemish poet Guido Gezelle (1830-1899) between 1877 and 1891.
