WPA Bus Tour with Gray Brechin and Harvey Smith
Join Gray Brechin and Harvey Smith as they travel through history on a bus tour of sites built by the New Deal’s “alphabet soup” agencies. You will learn about the major contribution government-paid workers made during the depression-era New Deal programs. Gray and Harvey will discuss the art, architecture, and social programs that effectively dealt with the period’s economic meltdown in contrast with today’s response. Some of the locations they will take you to are: Rincon Annex Post Office Murals, Sunshine School, The New Mint and the Old UC Extension, Golden Gate Park Stables and Fly Casting Pools, and Beach Chalet Murals. Please be aware that the tour will take about 5 hours depending on the traffic and the discussions. (Please bring your own lunch. There will be some sandwiches available for a small cost.)
