Stress, back in the good ol' days

These are illustrations from a 1957 Connecticut Mutual Life Insurance brochure on how to deal with the tension of modern life. I found them via 50 Watts

Alas, only the pictures remain and not the advice that went with them. I like to image that, along with buying more life insurance, the brochures recommended mixing yourself a good, stiff Hi-Ball, guzzling it down while you puffed on cigarettes and watched your new fangled TV. 

Whatever the advice, the graphic style, along with the scenarios of the pictures, are wonderful.
