Post Office Mural – Sylvester GA

Description

Chester Tingler painted this oil-on-canvas work, entitled “Cantaloupe Industry,” with Section funding, for the then-new Sylvester post office in 1939. The work has since been relocated; it now resides in the lobby of the new post office east of downtown.
