I’ve been there a bunch of times and never realized he was naked until now. It is in incredible shape for being almost 200 years old. I always thought that pictures never did it justice, it is a MASSIVE statue.

The Ladies of London are no different from the more modern Ladies of Liverpool. When the David statue of David was unveiled outside a dept store, there were many who just happened to be shopping in Lewis’store and caught sight of his nakedness!!! One lady had her chauffeur pull the car up in a not convenient spot so that she could crane her neck . . . and shoulders . . . . through the car window to catch a glimpse.
