    I’m so glad you’re doing this. My father, Frederick Massa, painted this mural. Luckily, the Ticonderoga PO is doing all it can to preserve the PO and the mural.

    My father also painted the murals in the Youth Wing of the Brooklyn NY Pacific Branch library. Those murals are gone. Fortunately, while my father was painting the murals someone took pictures, so we know what the murals looked like. Unfortunately, they’re in black and white, so we can only use our imaginations to see the colors.

    My father also painted a mural at a hospital in Brooklyn, but those murals are also gone
