ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – Have you ever noticed the murals inside the main post office in downtown St. Louis?

These murals were painted during the Great Depression by Chicago artist, Edward Millman. Millman won a national competition sponsored by the federal government to paint the new post office.
Recently, Jonathan Kodner, owner of Kodner Gallery, discovered five panels connected to those murals, which are quite valuable.

Kodner explains how the mural has been on display since 1939 at the old post office downtown, and how valuable the murals are today.
