      First ever hearing about the statue. What a shame it doesn't still stand.

      It still exists, but in a new location. www.publicartinla.com/sculptures/helmsman.html
      The Helmsman. 1931-1950. by Carl Romanelli. Now stands at Burton W. Chance Park, Marina del Rey, California. Believe the County of Los Angeles is currently working on a restoration/conservation project for it. More on Carl Romanelli en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carl_Romanelli
