loan shark

Commercial illustration, late 1950s, publication unknown. Tempera mechanical found in the Flora archives. The illustration's theme has contemporary resonance in the wake of the subprime meltdown.

This resonates still in this election year. YIKES! Banks own us. Throw in a few snake oil salesmen (on Fox TV) and we have the "All-American Republican CIRCUS FREAK SHOW", each man running,earning his own side show banner, and you have 2012. I love the font on the signs! Betty
