1940s - City Hall Bas-relief Sculpture
One of three bas-relief panels designed by artist Batholomew Mako (1890-1970) that adorn the exterior of City Hall. According to notes on the rear of the photo, the untitled west wing panel represents “free men bearing the body of peace while an eagle hovers in the background; at right soldiers [are] on guard [while] mechanics work on an airplane.” Additional panels are present on the east wing of the building as well as on the Third Street-facing side. Mako was also responsible for the painting, “Justice,” that once hung in the police courtroom in City Hall and presently hangs in the City Attorney’s office.
