Context & Credits
Item Details
Scenes of picturesque and quiet life were typical of Post Office murals in rural areas, while scenes of industry were common on city murals, so this one in the folk art style was a perfect fit for Middleport, a Western New York Village that was an important port on the Erie Canal. It was created by Marianne Appel for the Middleport Post Office.
