Description

The Hyde Park NY post office has murals covering all four walls painted by Olin Dows in 1941. Dows called the group of 19 panels, “Professions and Industries of Hyde Park.”  He provided a guide to his murals in booklet form (shown below). The project was paid for by the Treasury Section of Fine Arts.
