The Terminal Annex Post Office: A HUGE, beautifully designed building with an art-deco interior that is home to some 11 gorgeous WPA era murals depicting California’s history, both ancient and modern.
We climbed to view the restored mural, America Tropical, by David Siqueros, wandered past posters of coming exhibits, and back at Union Station where they do things in style ….
The murals in the Terminal Annex were painted by Boris Deutsch, a Russian emigre, who won a New Deal competition to create the 11 murals. His work is housed at various galleries in Southern California, San Francisco and San Diego, including LACMA. FYI: most of the murals were roped off from the public zone but no one prevented us from wandering down the hallway.
