A studio portrait of American-born stage actress Miss Grace Hawthorne (Priscilla A. Cartland), who operated two theatres in London during the 1880's and 90's. She may look angelic but was in fact later tried and convicted for being an accomplice in an attempted murder.😲 She was born in my home state of Maine.πŸŒ²πŸ“Œ Original Carte-De-Visite photographed by "Van Der Weyde". Circa 1890 from my 🌁 collection.

This shows the flip-side of the token in the last post πŸ’•πŸ˜šπŸ’‹ $3 Bucks? What a deal! LOL! πŸ˜‚ #history, #historical, #TheOctoroon, #MadameBolanger, #WorkingGirls, #brothel, #coin, #token #3DollaMakeYouHolla, #OldestProfessionInTheWorld, #instagood, #the_mighty_b
Once located at 438 N. Alameda, The Octoroon was a legal Brothel, accepted by the community as a profitable business, as well as a tourist attraction (Not so much in the eyes of the Ladies of the day, I'm sure) & was overseen by Madame Bolanger. She & her Girls ran a "respectable house of sport" until their welcome ran out.... Now, why this is of further interest to me, falls to my ancestors. You see, Madame Bolanger holds one of a number of versions/spellings of my family name, "Bolander", which history has concluded are linked to one another, as they are all variations of the same blood-line name.... 😏 But don't think badly of these Working Girls, 'cause hey, a girl's gotta do, what a girl's gotta do to survive! πŸ˜‰πŸ’• #history, #historical, #underbelly, #brothel, #MadameBolanger, #WorkingGirls, #OldestProfessionInTheWorld, #coin, #token, #snapseed, #instagood, #the_mighty_b
