Summary
"These beautiful portraits of prostitutes in Storyville were made early in the century by a little-known photographer named E. J. Bellocq. One of this country's few closed and legalized red-light districts. Storyville gots its name when, in 1896, Alderman Sidney Story attempted to clean up the New Orleans waterfront by restricting prostitution to a circumscribed area. Much to his chagrin, the area came to be called "Storyville", and it was known so until the Navy closed it for good in 1917, at the beginning of the country's entry into World War I."--Jacket
