  1. Thank you for posting. As a resident of South Orange and fan of the New Deal and WPA, I have been intending to research this mural for some time. Have posted with link on my FB page.

  2. Russell – thanks for your comment. I am looking to get some current images of the mural in the South Orange P.O. Do you still live there?
