    The Mystery Photo; looks to me that it is probably a Canadian Vent named Peter Rolston. Was very active on TV in Canada in the 60’s. His figure pictured might have been a “Pop Steinman” figure; not sure. I believe ( not positive) that Peter may have passed away a few years ago.

    He is Peter Rolston, of Vancouver, British Columbia, and his figure’s name was George, it was made by “Pop” Steinamn, an artisan from that city. I found this photo and the information in the March-April 1958 issue of “The Oracle”.

    Definitely Peter with his main figure George who was indeed a Pop Steinman.
    Peter was my friend and mentor for many years. He passed in 2006.
