"Our Daily Bread"
A 4 x 9 foot mural, “Our Daily Bread,” was painted by Frederick Stoddard in 1934 with the help of New Deal funds for the old Central Grammar School – now O’Maley Middle School in Gloucester MA.
Given the date, the work was almost surely paid for by the Public Works of Art Project (PWAP), which hired unemployed artists in the depth of the Depression.
