Post Office Mural – Middlebury IN

Description

The post office contains a 1939 Section of Fine Arts mural by Raymond Redell entitled “Early Middlebury Mail.”

The mural depicts early mail delivery in the form of the stagecoach speeding past a farm family waving at the coach with passengers returning their waves. There is a lot of motion in the work with the theme being quite common in PO murals.

Raymond Redell worked principally in Wisconsin with little known work otherwise.
