Here's the familiar Carpeteria guy standing proudly over the passersby
on Whittier Blvd in Whittier. Or at least when he used to be standing
there. This guy was removed in 1998.

This Carpeteria genie looks like he has lighter hair than the
Whittier guy above. Must be the sunshine in the Valley. This one is found in North Hollywood.

This little guy looks like a cousin or relative of the Steak Corral guy
below. Not sure if he once held up a porterhouse steak himself, or if
he's just giving the passing motorists the thumbs up signal.

The Ballerina Clown in Venice is an oft photographed image that,
to many, depicts that L.A. scene. It's an interesting sight to see.

Here's a shot of Geoffrey the Giraffe standing guard over the Toys R Us in Rosemead, CA. Unfortunately, time has not been good to this giraffe, and he was unceremoniously removed when the store closed down a few years ago. A Levitz Furniture store currently occupies the site. 04-06
UPDATE 01/11 : The Levitz Furniture store has been closed for a few years and the large building off the I-10 remains vacant. 01-11
