The Financial Art of Diving

Today's blog features a selection of ads for financial companies.

1963. I always forget my crowbar when I go diving. Just as well I never find any treasure!



1967. Looks to me like she's got her hair caught in her tank valve and he's having to sort it! Still, at least they can laugh about it, knowing their finances are taken care of. Smug b********!




This 1985 ad is one of a series for New England Life by Rowland B. Wilson (1930-2005). He also illustrated children's books and had cartoons published in the likes of Playboy, Esquire, The New Yorker and The Saturday Evening Post. In the 70s he worked for Richard Williams' animation company in London and later worked as a pre-production designer for the Walt Disney studio. You can see some of his work for The Little Mermaid here. (Click for a larger image).
