Memory of the Month: All for one, and one for all!

In honor of GEICO’s 75th anniversary, we’re sharing an image from GEICO’s past each month this year and inviting you to exercise your caption-writing skills.

GEICO started as a family business – newlyweds Leo and Lillian Goodwin got the company off the ground, and Leo Jr. was a GEICO employee for a time as well. Families can tolerate – and some actually encourage – a fair amount of nonsense from their members, and old photos of company gatherings show that things sometimes got pretty goofy at GEICO gatherings.

We’re not sure what the occasion was for these three gentlemen to get dressed up as … whatever they are. Perhaps they’re trying to contact the mother ship. What do you think?
