Title of the artwork: “The Land of Woods and Lakes”
Artists: Stella E. Harlos
It has been a long time since I’ve been to Hayward Wisconsin. I’m actually trying to remember the last time I was here. I think it was with my dad, we went fishing I think. Then again maybe I’m just saying that because there is a fish on the lobby wall.
What I can tell you is that Hayward has certainly grown from what I remember. I couldn’t believe how long I had to wait to get a good picture of this building. I’m not complaining, I was just sort of in the mind-set that I’d be able to get in and out of Hayward pretty quickly and move on with my day. There must have also been some sort of festival or sidewalk sale going on because there were a lot of people walking the streets and several stores has stuff out in front.
I guess the employees are a little protective as well. I politely waited in line and when one of the employees saw me with my camera she kind of stared at me with an inquisitive look. I assured her I was only taking photos of the mural and not the employees or counter. She sternly informed me that it was illegal to take pictures inside government buildings. I smiled and responded that I was only interested in the mural. She paused but finally agreed. I took my pictures and was on my way. That my friends is my Hayward Wisconsin Post Office visit.
