When you think of the Victorian Era, do you think of prostitution?

When I see pix of Queen Victoria in her widowhood state and hear of the social rules that were common in that era, it’s not the time that I first consider prostitutes , but they did indeed exist. They were quite the problem it seems.

And new rules had to be made to curb their struggle.

The issues of poor people needing to survive hasn’t changed at all though. And it’s bizarre how many issues we’re fighting over today were issues then including vaccines!

……

The more things change, the more they remain the same.
French writer Jean-Baptiste Alphonse Karr, “plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose.”
