Watts Towers by Sabato Simon Rodia

Watts Towers By Sabato Simon Rodia

He began construction of the Watts Towers in 1921, but did not finish them until 1954. They were frequently vandalized by neighbors; Rodia cited this as his reason for moving to Martinez, where he remained until his death on July 16, 1965. Generally, it is believed that Rodia never returned to Watts after moving away from the city.
A photograph of Simon Rodia is included on the cover of the Beatles' album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, released in 1967. The public Simon Rodia Continuation High School in Watts is named for him.
