Holy crap!  I need this for my mannequin album!!  Are you on FB Dee?  We need to share some pictures!

Yes I am. I think you just found me there. I have other mannequin shots. Thanks, D

A few years ago, didn't we have a problem with a picture of a nekked woman on a store front in Nob Hill?

Hold on tight, folks.

I guess we'll see!  I'm buckling up....

@SLF:  Yes, it was at this location, formerly called Snob Hill.  They would paint a mural over their door of a topless woman, get cited for it, and paint over it... with another mural of a topless woman.  I thought it was delightfully ballsy of them.

This mannequin, however, has been there for a few years now, so it seems to have weathered any storm that would've come its way.  Surprises the hell out of me, seeing as how a life-like, life-size naked statue appears to be a hell of a lot more "LOOK BOOBIES" than a painting.

@Benny: Snob Hill was next door where the cheesy bong store is now. This has always been Sach's. Same owners though (or so I believe).

I think the mannequin pales against the leather bears, personally...

Blast my misinformation.  And I think the leather bears are funny.  You know, from a pun standpoint.

Comment by Dee Cohen on December 19, 2012 at 5:13pm

Where are the leather bears?

I thought SLF was referring to problems posting the naked pic here, not problems having it in Nob Hill. I get it now. D

Yeah, I like 'em too. Surprised that they haven't attracted more attention, though, especially given the controversy over the mural next door.

@Dee: They're also at Sachs, usually in the same window. They rotate them in, I think...
