Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 087195110X, Paperback)

In the 1930s the Public Works of Art Project of the Treasury Department started a program "to secure suitable art of the best quality for the embellishment of public buildings." Post offices built under the New Deal were among the beneficiaries of this program. In Indiana, thirty-six of the thirty-seven original murals still exist. The color photography by Darryl Jones, a noted Indianapolis photographer, brings the murals to life.
