Wienermobile!

 

I put the back of the card first because that’s Meinhardt Raabe as “Little Oscar”. Starting in 1937, he was the original little person (he was 4′ tall) to be the official representative of Oscar Mayer Wieners.  This card dates to the 40s.

Raabe was in The Wizard of Oz.  He was the coroner who pronounced the Wicked Witch as “dead”.  Ding, dong, etc.

The credits are:  Pub. by William Wollin Studio, Madison 3, Wisc.   (63826)
