Beautiful Women From The Past II


Old West Brothel – California ’49ers labeled these women “ladies of the line” & “sporting women” while cowboys dubbed them “soiled doves.” Among the many trails of Kansas, common terms included “daughters of sin” “fallen frails,” “doves of the roost,” & “nymphs du prairie.” Other nicknames for these women, who were as much a part of the Old West as were outlaws, cowboys & miners, were “scarlet ladies,” fallen angels,” “frail sisters,” “fair belles,” & “painted cats,” among dozens of others.
