Card 134 was inspired by post office muralist, Ludwig Mactarian. Mactarian created one post office mural (though he is said to have assisted with at least two others): Cotton Growing, Manufacture, and Export in Dardanelle, Arkansas. You read that right. We’ve made it to Arkansas. As I mentioned in a previous card description, there were a LOT of post office muralists.
Mactarian is best known (when measured by www searches) for his military depictions. I am, of course, drawn to his more industrial scenes and architectural detail.
