"Saturday Afternoon on Main St."PO Sullivan, MO, 1940, mural, Lawrence Adams, "Sunday Afternoon on Main Street", 1942, o/c
The post office contains a 1942 Treasury Section of Fine Arts mural by Lawrence Adams entitled “Saturday Afternoon on Main St.”
This is a somewhat crowded mural showing people on Main Street in downtown Sullivan at the time the work was produced. The postal worker related that the work was largely done by students at the University of Missouri at Rolla, but this hasn’t been confirmed.
