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!
