Description

A few years after the San Pedro Service Center was built in 1972, ceramicist Barbara Leone designed this mural for the Center’s lobby. The mural celebrates San Pedro’s active harbor life. It is composed of glazed and unglazed ceramic tiles and depicts the Vincent Thomas Bridge, as well as other San Pedro sites, such as a cargo ship, a tug boat and a fisherman. The mural was fabricated by Barbara Vantrease Beall Studio in Torrance, California.
