Roy Rogers Belts, Wallets and Suspenders


Here's a great ad from the Cowboy King! Roy Rogers was as big as they come from the late 1940's through the late 1950's. As a child in the early sixties, Roy's TV series was still in regular reruns so the former Leonard Slye (born in Cincinnati!) was an early hero of mine, also! As late as the mid-sixties, I remember that the only school tablets I wanted were the ones you could STILL find with Roy and Trigger on 'em!

In terms of longevity and amounts
of merchandise, Roy Rogers is far
and away the KING of the Cowboys!
While Gene and Hoppy faded away in
time, ol' Roy and Dale had a good
long run.
