Happy Labor Day

My friend Johanna posing for scale in front of one of the Coit Tower murals in San Fransisco. I have just finished reading "American Made" by Nick Taylor about the New Deal and WPA during the depression in the 1930s. How amazing to have government employ artists! And what beautiful work they did. 

This is Coit Tower again.

This one is by Henry Bernstein for the East Lansing, Michigan post office. 

I like the very modern style of this one by Paul Julian but the sexy romanticization is odd. The clothing is surprisingly twenty-first century looking. It is in the post office in Fullerton, California.
