Have you ever been waiting in line at the North Manchester Post Office and found yourself idly staring at the large mural on the wall? Ever wondered about the story behind the painting? We have the answer for you! Stop by the Indiana Room and check out "A simple and vital design: the story of the Indiana post office murals" by John Carlisle (INC Car) to get the behind-the-scenes scoop! The mural is titled "Indiana Farm - Sunday Afternoon" and was painted by Alan Tompkins in 1938 for a fee of $540! We particularly enjoy this little anecdote about how the farmer's wife was originally hanging laundry, but the drawing was changed when it was decided she wouldn't be doing such a task on a Sunday!
This book is full of interesting tales about all kinds of post office murals - check it out today... we have two copies!
