Additional Description: Always keeping her keen business eye open, Miss Laura probably perpetuated a traditional custom of turn of the century brothels. Legend has it that Miss Laura gave her better, more frequent customers special favor tokens which they could later redeem with the girls. The ladies of the house sometimes tapped tokens on their bedrooms windows to attract the attention of customers outside.
