Permanent Park

Today I'm posting the third of the four relief carvings on City Hall. The four relief carvings by the entrance to City Hall "represent ... four principle concerns of city government: playgrounds, schools, parks, and water supply".

This one focuses on Parks. The figures in the carving seem to be planting trees and, perhaps, pruning the branches.

Nice. I wonder if this comes from FDR's time - the WPA, maybe?
