This WPA era mural still stands in the Kingston, PA post office. It depicts a scene of the dominant area industry of the 1930s, that being Anthracite mining.
When first created, one could not miss this mural. But since the recent reduction in size of the Kingston PO, this mural, despite its large dimensions, gets lost within the building’s redo.
Well, at least it was not destroyed during the PO’s reconstruction.
Such works of art were featured in many post offices across the USA during the WPA building spree in The Great Depression Years.post
