Lewiston in Nez Perce County, Idaho — The American West (Mountains)
The building features imported cast iron fronts and oriel, or bay, windows. It is said that during the Twenties the "ladies of the night" draped in the bay windows and smiling at those below attracted potential customers. The city closed the houses of prostitution early in World War II at the insistence of the Navy which had a training unit at the Northern Idaho College of Education, later Lewis-Clark State College.
