Kassler, "Post Rider" fresco, Annenberg Center – Beverly Hills CA
Charles Kassler painted a series of lunettes for what was then the Beverly Hills Post Office in 1936: “Post Rider” and “Air Mail”, two end lunettes funded by the Section of Fine Arts, and “Construction–PWA”, six lunettes funded by TRAP.
Located in the interior Grand Hall, the murals depict “the creation of the mail service and views of modern life during the Depression. These murals are one of only two fresco murals in California and stand today as an elegant representation of the citizens of another era.”
