Murals for the U.S. Naval Air Station, Alemeda, CA. In 1943 REW was commissioned to create a series murals depicting the development of California for the air station's Officer's Mess. These images were taken at the air station 50 years after they were completed. The murals show some paint loss but retain their historical significance. Since the air station's closing, it is not known if they still exist.
