Each month, we share an image from GEICO’s past and invite you to exercise your caption-writing skills.

GEICO fountainBased on some of the legends I’ve heard about long-ago goings-on in this fountain, which still graces the corporate headquarters, whatever this young woman is up to seems pretty benign. It appears she’s christening a model sailboat that’s about to venture out upon the bounding main – and risk another soaking under the many jets of water.

These days, of course, GEICO can help people obtain boat insurance to protect human-sized boats and their owners. But back then, that wasn’t the case, so if this boat met an untimely end in the rough waters of the fountain, its owner would have to bear the full expense.

What’s your best guess as to what’s going on here?
