Inside the iconic structure are several colorful murals depicting themes of labor and life in California during the Great Depression. A group of master artists went to work on these murals in 1934 as part of the Public Works of Art Project. The program was part of the federal government&rsquo;s effort to put people back to work, a precursor to the creation of the Works Progress Administration.&nbsp;</p><p>The year 1934 also marked the controversial West Coast Waterfront Strike, which helped usher in the national organized labor movement. Violence broke out during the strike, and controversy over the radical content in some of the murals ensued. Some of the most contentious scenes were painted over. Bernard Zakheim was one of the Coit Tower muralists, and his daughter Ruth Gottstein remembers the strike in this interview with San Francisco StoryCorps.&nbsp; Tue, 15 Oct 2013 00:19:43 +0000 Jasmin Lopez 34439 at http://kalw.org StoryCorps: Coit Tower's Murals at 80 StoryCorps: Street violence comes home http://kalw.org/post/storycorps-street-violence-comes-home <p></p><p><span style="font-family: Arial, sans-serif; font-size: small; line-height: 18.200000762939453px; white-space: pre-wrap;">Darwin Farrar lived his childhood in a violent area of 1960s Pasadena, CA.
