Cliffside Park, NJ: "Rural Delivery" relief
The former Cliffside Park, New Jersey post office contained a 1938 Section of Fine Arts relief entitled “Rural Delivery” by Bruno Neri, then of Perth Amboy. The present status and location of the relief is unknown to Living New Deal.
Bruno Neri was issued the $710 contract to create the relief on November 25, 1936; the contract was for: “Preliminary design, full size cartoon, labor, materials, scaffolding, etc., necessary for the designing, and finishing of a full size relief and its installation in the Post Office building at Cliffside Park, N.J.” Final payment for the completed work was approved May 17, 1938.
