How Much is that Hooker in the Window?

January 13, 2012

Butte, Montana is known for its ugliness. It has a giant toxic mining pit and its surrounding hills are scarred from mineral extraction.

Butte's Venus Alley

Its buildings are worn and breaking. Its hard to believe that it once was the richest and most exciting place in America. It was the first city to get electricity. It had the best restaurants, the grandest buildings, and the most powerful people. Butte also housed the largest red light district. Under the streets and in the back alleys, thousands of sex workers aimed to please the local miners and politicians alike. Venus Alley was the center of it all. Now, unless you look carefully, the alley is just another dilapidated part of Butte.

The deed would be done, the mess cleaned up. The man would leave, scraping the door along the floor. The woman would reapply her lipstick, arrange her dress, light a cigarette and resume her place in the window.

Butte may have faded with time but, in her hay day,  she was sexiest city in America.
