Los Angeles – Central Public Library 2

There is a set of interesting murals with a literary theme in the Los Angeles Central Library. They are located in the International Languages Department in what was formerly the Children’s Reading Room. The murals, painted in 1926, depict scenes from Walter Scott’s novel Ivanhoe and cover the entire upper wall surface of the room.
