Original vintage WPA wooden sign. This is a true piece of Americana. The Works Progress Administration was formed in 1935 and the name was changed in 1939 to The Work Projects Administration. The WPA was formed to provide paid jobs for over three million unemployed men. Roads and bridges were built and the government employed artists, writers, and musicians as well. This sign and others like it hung on public buildings in the U. Where projects were organized. This example is in excellent shape retaining most of the red, white, and blue paint. It is very bold and commands it’s own presence when hung on an interior wall. It is a historically significant American artifact that measures 36″ high by 35″ wide by 3 deep.
