JFK Toilet Bowl Memorial

The JFK Toilet Bowl Memorial is an "unfortunate" tribute to our fallen President. I am sure it was not intended to look exactly like a toilet, but I'll bet the completed project gave the patron an unwelcome surprise. It's located in Old Town Torrance, which has a charm of the 1950s and '60s, so your visit can include cruising the old streets, a stroll, and lunch in a local restaurant.
