Rare & Historic Works Progress Administration Jobsite Sign Item # F8768

Circa 1938

On Sale!

$3,375.00 $4,500.00

The Works Progress Administration (known informally as the WPA) was a post-Depression program aimed at getting American workers back on the job – it is one of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's greatest legacies, and many of the 10's of thousands of resulting WPA buildings still stand today. While the program generated work for the masses, the projects did not skimp on style or craftsmanship. Historic and iconic favorites include the Griffith Observatory in California and Oregon's Mount Hood Timberline Lodge.

This hand-painted sign is an extremely rare artifact from the era, and features the WPA's official logo. Hammered together pine boards boast well-preserved white, black, red and blue paint, with hand-lettering. This is a once-in-a-lifetime piece of American history.

  • Historical Style: Industrial
  • Condition Notes: The chipped and worn nature of the finish only adds to the character and authenticity of the sign.
