Rare color publicity photograph of Roy Rogers in western attire that he has signed with his given name Leonard Slye.
Exceedingly Rare Photograph signed: "Leonard Slye" by Roy Rogers. Color, 8x10. "The King of the Cowboys" was born Leonard Slye on November 5, 1911, in Cincinnati, Ohio. He worked on his family's farm until 1929 when he packed up a guitar that he bought for $20 and headed west for Hollywood. He worked as a truck driver, peach picker and country singer. In 1934 he formed a group called the Sons of the Pioneers. While in that group he was known as Leonard Slye, then Dick Weston, and finally Roy Rogers. This is not a vintage photograph of the "Leonard Slye" period, but one taken years later. He was asked to sign this photograph with his original name. This is the first photograph signed "Leonard Slye" that we have ever seen! Fine condition.
