So What Did A Dublin Rodeo Ad Look Like?

We’ve talked quite a bit about the Dublin Rodeo on this site, how it was the last stop before Madison Square Garden, how it drew unbelievable crowds to both rodeo and the parade. Some time ago, someone gave me some old newspapers that only this week did I find time to sort. One held this Dublin Rodeo ad.


It’s easy to forget, but in 1958, $2.00 would equal $16.39 (in 2014) today. Not quite as inexpensive as it sounds in a day when people did not throw their money around as freely as they do today.  Of course, for a world class show, what a great deal!

About Fredda Jones

Fredda Davis Jones was raised “in the country” in Comanche County and learned very early that creativity and innovation are traits that can flourish even in small-town Texas and that with enough effort, indeed nothing is impossible, including being married to the same man for over 40 years! Rickey and Fredda have 2 children, 5 grandchildren, and a crazy life that includes sitting in the bleachers several times a week. The rest of her time is spent creating great content for and marketing small-town Texas.
