gårDagens kvinna: Mattie Silks (1847-1929)

MattieSilks

“Queen of the Red Lights” i Denver, USA. Hennes tidigaste horhus låg i guldgrävarlägren i Colorado. Det första i Denver öppnade 1876 och flera lokaler senare köpte hon 1911 det berömda “House of Mirrors” i tre våningar med 27 rum, inklusive fyra salonger och en balsal. Det skulle gå städat till, inga svordomar eller rökning. Priset anpassades efter vad kunden ansågs kunna betala, champagne från $5 till $100 dollar flaskan och en tur till övervåningen med en flicka från $10 till $200. Mattie behöll 4 dollar på var 10:e dollar. Hon stod för husrum, mat och tvätt. Hennes riktiga namn är okänt.

  • Amy Wallace, David Wallechinsky: Listboken

Jag gillar listor, både mina egna och andras. Jag har deras första tre på engelska. Irving Wallace, som är avliden, var en av initiativtagarna. Jag kunde inte klara mig utan mina, men ingen skulle vara intresserad av att läsa dem. En riktig listbok innehåller information om allt möjligt man aldrig skulle ha en tanke på läs, t ex 9 berömda näsor, 4 platser med fler grisar än människor (Danmark är en av dem), 10 svampar som förändrade historien. Man kan nog säga att den här bloggen består av listor.
