Photo of the Week: Big Slim McAuliffe

SFC_p208Big Slim McAuliffe, a featured performer on Wheeling, West Virginia’s WWVA Jamboree in the ’30s and ’40s.  On the verso of this ca. 1938 photo, sent as a postcard from Wheeling to a (presumably) young fan in Moundsville, W.V.,  is printed:

Hello folks,

I want to thank you for the support you give me on my Coco Wheats program and I sure hope you like this picture. My horse is a genuine registered Arabian stallion. I think he is the finest high school horse in the country and he does all kinds of tricks. I hope you will get to see us in person sometime. Thanks a million, million ways for your support and I hope you’ll continue to eat Coco Wheats.

Big Slim, The Lone Cowboy
