Who IS this guy? Part 2

Yashica Guy Ad 22

Yashica advertisement from 1959.

In a previous post, I had asked who this gentleman was since he appears in a few ads from this period and has appeared on the cover of a Yashica camera instruction booklet.

Yas Guy 1

Same image as above except this time in color.

Yas Guy 2

Now dressed as a “cowboy”. Same time period, late 1959. Sales brochure in German.

Yas Guy 3

My first thought was that he was a television star or movie star of some note but no solid leads.

Apparently, the bowler hat, pipe, and wink are all part of his act.

Thanks for stopping by! – Chris
