“The Hare, the Tortoise and High Blood Pressure. Metropolitan Insurance Advertisement. 6.5” x 10”. $5.00 from Debora Segur.
This advertisement for the Metropolitan Insurance Company in New York City plays on the fable “The Tortoise and the Hare.” The image printed at the top features the animals from the classic Aesop fable in an intense race. They play on the idea that the turtle won the race because he took life much easier than the hare, and so should those with high blood pressure.
