Uniroyal Gal

St. James Infirmary on Moffet Boulevard had a 30-foot-tall paper mache Wonder Woman inside. At some point, they got a Uniroyal Gal and used her outside as a come on! It all burned down in 1998, I believe.

Uniroyal Gal - Confirmed Gone

All sources list the location of St. James Infirmary Bar & Grill as 390 Moffet Blvd. That location is now a Hampton Inn. I didn't get a chance to talk to the current owners of the property but I can safely say there is no sign of the Uniroyal Gal.

Uniroyal Gal?

St James Infirmary Bar & Grill. A 25-ft. Wonder Woman may be an original Uniroyal Gal. I haven't been there for years, but apparently she is still inside.

From a 1996 article in the Los Altos Town Crier: "[A previous statue] has been replaced by a military nurse in a bomber jacket reminicent of the roller-skating waitress on the album cover of the American Graffiti soundtrack... The 25-foot Wonder Woman statue received a complete makeover, her broken right hand has been replaced and she received a fresh coat of paint."
