Description:
The volume illuminates not only the imagery of prostitution but also issues and problems relating to women and men in a patriarchal society. It discusses the conspicuous sexual commerce during this era and the resulting public panic about the deterioration of social life and mores and describes the system of regulating prostitutes and the subsequent rise of clandestine prostitutes, who were condemned both for blurring social boundaries and for spreading sexual licentiousness among their moral and social superiors.

Probably the most interesting moments of the trip abroad by the architectural students are those spent in sketching bits of interest in water color. Nothing is so helpful, so reminiscent as these same notes of color when viewed in alter years.
