Madame, Please

Madame, Please: An Examination of Prostitution in the Mid-1800s

What made Bangor, and many cities like her, cities of legend in the 19th century? Business, industry, entertainment, and money. One of the most enduring of those businesses was prostitution.

Learn about one of the oldest businesses as seen through the eyes of William W. Sanger, M.D. in his 1858 treatise “The History of Prostitution.”

This presentation can be delivered live or virtually.
