WIN! San Francisco Stops Using Condoms As Evidence ⇢

The girls of Storyville: Haunting pictures from New Orleans' red-light district reveal how prostitutes lived 100 years ago ⇢

"With his subjects in varying states of undress, photographer E. J. Bellocq took dozens of portraits inside the brothels of Storyville - the only legalized red-light district in North America, until it was shut down in 1917. 

The haunting images show madams in their finest lace and fur, with several prostitutes completely nude or lounging about playing cards, reclining amongst pillows, or having a drink.”
