Love this old editorial cartoon that comments, not too subtly, on the pernicious threat of Chicago's old Levee vice district. But come now, just look at the lovely Everleigh sisters, proprietors of the legendary Everleigh Club, the best-known Levee establishment. I know appearances can be deceiving, but still, they don't really look that vile and corrupting, do they?
I used to drink at a north side bar that was called The Everleigh Club, in homage to the brothel. However, of all the activities the latter was famous for, the only one practiced at the bar was drinking. Darned uptight Eighties.
