New book delves into the world of the Vic­to­rian brothel

SOME things change, some stay the same...

And it seems pros­ti­tutes are very much in the sec­ond group, flaunt­ing their lady wares through­out the ages.

Feast your eyes on the sex sellers of 1892, cap­tured by snappa Wil­liam Gold­man and now freshly re­vealed in a posh but racy book, Work­ing Girls.

It’s de­scribed as “unique and art­ful pri­vate pho­tographs... cap­tur­ing the deep ap­pre­ci­a­tion and un­der­stand­ing of the group of women who lived and worked at a brothel in Read­ing, Penn­syl­va­nia, circa 1892”.

Author Robert Flynn John­son took a decade to un­earth more than two hun­dred vin­tage pho­tographs of the women.

In­side the brothel, they pose ar­tis­ti­cally for the cam­era, and also show their off- duty rou­tines like read­ing, smok­ing and bathing – in be­tween of­fer­ing the full range of sex acts at 19th Cen­tury prices. The snaps sit along­side high fa­lutin’ es­says from fem­i­nist schol­ars.

Mod­ern- day bur­lesque star and fore­word writer Dita Von Teese said: “This fas­ci­nat­ing col­lec­tion shows... there is beauty in even the most mun­dane mo­ments.”
