Description
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, this panel on the Third Street-facing side of the building is entitled “Tribute to Craftsmen,” and is the only one of the three reliefs on City Hall with a title. Additional panels are present on the east and west wings of the building facing Olive Avenue. 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.
