"Present Products of South Norwalk"
Kindred McLeary painted five tempera-on-plaster murals for the Norwalk post office in 1941. The post office was renovated in 1963, leaving three murals “Present Products of South Norwalk;” “Past Products of South Norwalk;” and “Indians Instructing Pioneers in Forest Lore” in what is now the Postmaster’s office (not generally accessible to the public). Two other murals—”Old Well,” the largest of the original murals, and “Bays and Oyster Fishing”—were destroyed during the renovation.
