This was a card given to men to advertise houses of prostitution. When men came into town, they were sneakingly given these kinds of cards at the train station up until the 1930s or so.All cities had houses of prostitution,the women were called "Soiled Doves" in the Victorian era.It was considered "normal" to have these brothels, they paid taxes etc. During the Civil War there was such a huge epidemic of venereal disease that in 1 town the army quarantined "doves" on a river boat.
