SNEAKER POLITICS 'STORYVILLE' T-SHIRT - BLACK
Our design was inspired by Storyville which was the red-light district of New Orleans, Louisiana from 1897 to 1917. Storyville was established by municipal ordinance under the New Orleans City Council, to regulate prostitution and drugs. Alderman Sidney Story, a City Councilman, wrote guidelines and legislation to control prostitution within the city. The ordinance designated a sixteen block area as the part of the city in which prostitution, although still nominally illegal, was tolerated or regulated. The area was originally referred to as "The District", but its nickname, "Storyville", soon caught on.
