Venice Post Office Rally

The Venice post office is a gem built by the federal government during the Great Depression.   Its tile roof and New Deal artist-created mural makes it one of the classic works of the 30’s.  Now it is threatened by the federal budget crisis and is on the chopping block as are many federally supported programs. The Los Angeles Times covered a recent rally by supporters to save this historic building.
