Turn of the Century Wax Museum- Theodore Roosevelt


The Turn of the Century Wax Museum in the Old Towne Mall in Torrance, CA housed several tableaux featuring various historical figures. This image is of Theodore Roosevelt in his popular rough rider attire. I doubt that this wax figure came to life when the museum closed for the night like in Night at the Museum, but this figure does show our 26th president fairly accurate. Presidents are favorite fodder for wax museums, and he was the most popular president during the years around the turn of the century. Like many scenes at wax museums, this one is made interesting by the large mural which creates some action and movement.
