Between 1885 and 1960, laws and policies designed to repress prostitution dramatically shaped London's commercial sex industry.

This book examines how laws translated into street-level reality, explores how women who sold sex experienced criminalization, and charts the complex dimensions of the underground sexual economy in the modern metropolis.
