Description

These two low reliefs were cast in stone and installed when the building was constructed, in a design done by William Merchant.

Although they were created five years after the Works Progress Administration was liquidated, both borrow from the realism and industriousness found in the WPA-style. The relief on the left symbolizes the importance of power in industry and the one of the right shows the significance of electricity in keeping the world lit.

Commissioned By

Location

At Mission and 8th Streets, along the 8th Street side of the Pacific Gas and Electric Mission Substation
