    This mural by Criss Glasell is titled: Rural Free Delivery.

    The mural was painted off-site by Glasell on canvas. On March 28th, 1938, she installed the mural in the Leon, Post Office.

    The above information was provide to me by the Leon, Iowa Postmaster. I have viewed all 13 egg tempera New Deal murals in Iowa. I am an artist that paints in egg tempera.
