One of the images from this series had a Chicago newspaper from 1912 in it. Taken during the same time as E.J. Bellocq was photographing prostitutes in New Orleans, but these images are more purposeful and modern. They were probably taken for artist studies, given their poses. Only one group of prints has surfaced and no duplicate images are known.
