Post Office Murals – Redondo Beach CA

Description

The Redondo Beach post office contains three oil on canvas murals by Paul Sample that were originally created for the since-demolished post office building at Catalina and Garnet street. The artwork relocated with the post office to its current location in 1977. The murals were painted in 1937 with TRAP funding. The murals depict “Sheep Farming and Ocean Near Redondo,” “Excursion Train and Picknickers in the 90s” and “Fishing Redondo Dock”.
