Miners at Work
This 1938 Section of Fine Arts mural”Miners at Work” by Jacob Elshin was originally installed in the Renton post office.
Elshin “actually visited underground mines and sketched miners at work for his mural in Renton, Washington, that depicted this historic aspect of the city.” (tfaoi.com)
