Regarding U.S. Post Office. Excerpt from the Historic Hartwell Walking Tour brochure:
Above the doors, you will notice three marble reliefs featuring various forms of transportation. Go inside and look on the wall to your left. The mural is a Depression-era (1939) Works Progress Administration (WPA) commissioned mural by Orlin Clayton titled “The Letter.” The WPA employed over 4 million artists, musicians, and actors in artistic projects, such as painting murals in public places, across the United States.
