Cecile all you see is what you read or Glamorize in your mind about these Ladies! Sure there was a few that did contribute to a few charities but if you believe every thing you ready about these tramps then well here’s a quote A string of small frame buildings located in the most despicable part of the red light district - called the "row" or "alley." Each structure was just big enough for a door and two small windows, was dirty and usually had very few furnishings. Most, but not all, girls worked for pimps. There was no romance in the cribs - some girls moved as many as 80 men a night. But me it makes me want to spew my guts up!
If the truth were know these woman were the major contributors to Syphilis and every other VD know at that time. If memory serves me right the first woman hung in California was a Ho!
