  1. There are more WPA painting here – they were covered up around the time the new post office was built. I don’t know if they were painted over or covered with something removable. They were above the grated “windows” where people waited in line. There are a lot of us who would love to be able to see them once again!

    • Kate, thanks for letting us know. What a shame the paintings have been covered up!
