Welcome to part three in our five-part series featuring the Oak Park Illinois Post Office. Yesterday we featured the second mural in the Oak Park Lobby. Today we feature the third mural.
Now on the good stuff, let’s continue our tour of the murals. The following is a collection of photographs from the third panel. How have you liked this series so far? Did you learn something new?

Have you ever found yourself in a conversation with some and said to yourself….”Man you should really see the Oak Park Illinois Post Office” They have some really neat stuff there? That’s exactly what happen to me. And thanks to Deb she enlighten me to this great building.
