Last week, the U.S. Postal Service
I made a trip to the South San Francisco Historical Society Museum to find out more about this historic location.
Construction on the building started in 1939, and the office was dedicated on June 29, 1940.
The murals inside depict a landscape of South San Francisco and figures from its history. They were funded by a WPA grant and were painted by Victor Arnautoff, a muralist who studied with Mexico's Diego Rivera and also painted the murals in San Francisco's Coit tower.
Take a look at the slideshow to see more of the history of the Linden Avenue Post Office.
Special thanks to the wonderful and warm Elizabeth Ervin for her help in compiling this photographs.
