The last Doggie Diner head left standing in San Francisco. The iconic diner chain at one time had over two dozen locations from the sixties until they closed in the mid-eighties. The doggie head would rotate on a pole above each diner . There are a few surviving heads owned by private collectors. This one was restored in 2001. I took this shot in 2002 when it was still in front of the Carousel diner across from the S.F. Zoo. Now the Carousel is closed and the head has been moved a few blocks away.
