What my parents saw

GREAT collection of WPA posters via the Libe of Congress site. Wonderful for getting ideas for good retro designs.

  1. The Norwalk High School, now the City Hall, had a large collection of WPA murals in many of the ‘public’ rooms.  The cafeteria, the library, the auditorium, etc, all had wall sized scenes.  Years ago the city realized what a valuable collection they had and removed and restored them.  I’m not sure where they are displayed now.  To us they weren’t art, they were targets.  I wonder how much dried creamed corn and peas they had to scrape off of the cafeteria mural.

  2. So when are we going to go on a Norwalk WPA mural tour? Always wanted to. And if it was cafeteria food from the late sixties, it probably helpred preserve the mural.
