THE KING OF THE COWBOYS LIVED AND WORKED IN THE SAN FERNANDO VALLEY

DISCOVERING OUR VALLEY   2011
Just so that you old time cowboy movie enthusiasts don't feel slighted, here is a vintage postcard photograph of "The King of the Cowboys" Roy Rogers. 
Owning a genuine Roy Rogers' cap pistol was a major status symbol for school kids in the late 1940's and early 1950's.  Roy and Dale had a small ranch just off of Topanga Canyon Boulevard between Canoga Park and Chatsworth. Do you remember the name of Roy's faithful dog? How about his horse, or his Jeep's name?
