The reader PI Fan that supplied the pictures from inside Mannequins has emailed me, distressed that one reader feels they are fake. He included a different picture taken that same night that helps "date" the photos.

First of all, in a Blog article dated January 28th, I published the above photo. I commented that a few floor boards had been replaced recently on the Waterfront Stage. You may need to click on the photo to enlarge it but you can see the fresh boards. I don't know when they were installed but they look fresh enough to have been installed within a few weeks.
In a Blog article dated February 21st, I published the updated photo above showing that the entire stage had been freshly painted. Again I don't know when that happened but it was definitely sometime between January 28th and February 21st. With me so far?
PI Fan just emailed me this photo above. He says it was taken the same night as the Mannequins interior shots. I can't read the header in this published photo but I can read the header in my email and it was taken on the same date as the Mannequins pics. Notice the same freshly replaced boards which had not yet been painted. Any reader that has the ability to read the header, please post a Comment about the date & time it was taken. I think this helps prove when the Mannequins photos were taken: in late January 2010!
