Looking for an interesting looking old googie like sign? Well, the sign out front Jack's Salad Bowl in Whittier is the one for you. This place has two signs... unfortunately this one that sits in the parking lot doesn't light up anymore.

Jack's Salad Bowl was built in the late 1950's by the late Martin Stern, Jr., who is also well known for having commissioned various Las Vegas landmarks such as The Mint and the International Hotel as well as Ships Coffee Shop.
