Campbell, OH relief
The post office in Campbell, Ohio houses an example of New Deal artwork: the terra cotta relief “Iron and Steel Industry” by Joseph Walter. The work, completed in 1941, was commissioned by the federal Treasury Section of Fine Arts for the then-new (and now former) post office building. It has since been relocated to Campbell’s present post office building.
