Simon Rodia and Watts Towers

Watts Towers is an incredible group of structures in the Watts district of Los Angeles, California built by brick and tile layer, Simon Rodia over a period of 33 years from 1921 to 1954.

I visited the Towers in the mid 1960′s with my parents but haven’t been back since. I think a trip there is called for on one of my next trips to LA.

I’m a gonna do something.

I think Simon really did something.
