Prudential

“Own a Piece of the Rock”

Don’t own the insurance, but did find some interesting facts: 1) 1876 – the company hires the first female life insurance agent, Julia Babbitt;  2) 1959 – in Boston, ground is broken for the Prudential Center tower, aka “the Pru”;  3) in 1961, the company purchases the Empire State Building, then sells it in 1991; and

4) – in 1970, the above slogan becomes one of the most memorable in advertising history, which brings me back to why this chunk of ice reminds me of the old commercial.
