Big Doughnut, Donut King II

Better to go during daylight. They do not illuminate the giant doughnut at night.

Donut King II Doughnut.

Giant Donut

It was very cool to read Otis Sanders' tip on your Big Donut page about Dale's Donuts. I had gone looking for Dale's last Christmas, but the book Googie Redux had the intersection as Alondra and Central, which put me too far west. I plan to go over soon to take a look at it and take pictures. I'm attaching a photo of Donut King (which I told you about earlier this year).

Giant Doughnut

While driving around looking for interesting stuff to photograph, I found a fourth giant doughnut: Donut King 2 at 15032 South Western Avenue in Gardena. It's identical to the Randy's and Kindle's donut sculptures and features a fresh paint job.
