    In an attempt to control the rampant prostitution in New Orleans in the early 1900′s, the City Council legalized prostitution in 1898 in a 38-block area of the French Corner. Dubbed, “Storyville,” after the council member who proposed the idea; the area remained a red light district until 1917. Photographer E.J. Bellocq, secretly documented the prostitutes in Storyville and later published them in a book "E.J. Bellocq Storyville Portraits".
