Marcus Huish, The Studio, Special Summer Number, Sketching Grounds, 1909 mentions Goodwin's Rye views in general.
Diary, 1909, April 19th.
'Sent for tickets for Baveno, for the four of us to start on Friday next. Went over to Winchelsea and got a note for some sketches of Rye and Winchelsea, wanted to illustrate an article in “Studio”: fortunately I have most of them ready, as they are wanted at once.'

April 21st. 'After all, had to go to London, partly to take up some drawings for reproduction in the “Studio” – six of which are to be done.'

Marcus Huish, The Studio, Special Summer Number, 'Sketching Grounds', 1909.
'Herbert Marshall and Albert Goodwin are amongst those who have made these towns their own, and amonst the latter's most beautiful drawings must be counted some red Cinque Port of Rye. Both it and Winchelsea possess good inns for artists, although the “Mermaid" at the former has now been taken possession of by golfers, who threaten to oust the painter from what was once looked upon as his peculiar possession. There are other towns in Sussex which retain much of their eighteenth-century character, but Rye carries one back much further than that, and it is a mediaeval town that you come upon as you enter the old gateways, both here and at Winchelsea. As regards the first named, subjects abound, both of its streets and of the town and harbour from the flats.'
