Torrance Post Office, 1935
"The building was part of an eight-building Works Progress Administration project built in the mid-1930s that included the post office, a civic auditorium, City Hall and library. The entire project was heralded around the country as an example of a new and wonderful civic center. The style of architecture is called [PWA] moderne and the post office is the only building still being used as it was originally intended to be."
Project may be PWA rather than WPA, but more documentation is needed for verification.
