Fifty Years Of Prostitute Photos 1870-1920. Volume V

Jay Moynahan [Compiled By]

Publication: Chickadee Publishing, 2012, Spokane

First edition. 8vo. Signed by the compiler. Pictorial stiff wrappers, 63 pp., acknowledgments, introduction, illustrated from photographs. This is the fifth volume in the series. The photographers and women in the photographs are by and large unknown. Most of these previously unpublished photographs were produced by professional photographers. Many of the women are shown in photographic studios with painted backdrops. As in the previous books, the photographs range from fully-dressed prostitutes to those who have shed all their clothes. The photographs are not pornographic, the ladies are just not wearing clothes. Each photograph is accompanied by a quote about prostitutes or prostitution. These quotes come from a variety of sources. Some of the passages are serious while others are tongue-in-cheek. Although many of the quotes are from contemporary sources, they apply to the time period represented in this volume. As new.
