"Railroad and Shipping"
The sign for this 10′ x 10′ PWAP fresco “Railroad and Shipping” by William Hesthal in Coit Tower reads:
“Seen here are the symbols of transportation commerce in the 1930s: trains and boats. On the left, a train prepares to depart while a signalman watches and waits. Behind the boat is the Third Street Bridge at China Basin, completed in 1933.”
