G. Randon satirizes Olympia’s suggested trade

In Caricatures, Courtesan & Prostitute on May 11, 2010 at 5:26 am

In Le Journal, June 29, 1865

Maid: Madame.

Olympia: What is it?

Maid: There’s a man that wants to see you on business.

Olympia: Show him in.

(Apparently, that’s the way things are done among certain “ladies.”)
