George Aarons’ three cast stone reliefs, “Development of the Postal Service,” were installed in 1939 in the then-new (and now former) Ripley, Mississippi post office. They were moved to the new post office in 1999 and installed on the back work room floor. As of 2014, access is “happily granted by the employees” (newdealartregistry.org).
