vintage punch ad of the day

Vintage Ad #292: The Norwich Way
"David, do you think our Norwich Union policy is going to help us when that lovely ocean liner rams into us?"

"Just smile for the camera, dear."

The Oriana was commissioned by Orient Lines for its UK-Australia passenger route. Launched in 1960, it passed through several hands until extensive storm damage resulted in its scrapping in 2005.
