Description

Harry Sternberg painted this oil on canvas mural in 1939, entitled “The Family–Industry and Agriculture”–with funds provided by the Treasury Section of Fine Arts. The man, woman, and child in the mural are Sternberg, his wife, and their infant child.

Created for the then-new former post office in Ambler, it has since been relocated to Ambler’s current postal facility.
