The Brothel Mistress of the Chabanais
The scenery fit closely to my book--the staircase to the rooms, pictures of naked ladies on the walls going up to the second floor, and the different quarters for the women who roomed and slept together. There is also a very graphic scene of the prostitutes waiting to be examined by the doctor and his report to the mistress of the house. As far as their personal hygiene, it was pretty much as I described. They kept cleaned, bathed, used creams, and perfumes.
The ending told a stark contrast showing prostitutes today standing on the street soliciting customers, compared to the houses of pleasure that once existed in Paris until abolished.
