This bust of John is located at Nybroplan in Stockholm. Those sideburns are not bad at all. You get an urge to touch them with your fingers. There is another statue of the same man and with just as nice sideburns in Battery Park, New York City. John Ericsson is best known for inventing the propeller and to have constructed the ironclad warship USS Monitor during the American civil war. John's famous brother, Nils, had no sideburns though.
