I hesitated to post the journaling that goes with these pages because it may be too much information for some. It is a brothel and I did write a little bit about the life of the madam. Please be warned that these layouts about "Dolly's House" are not appropriate for children.
These pictures were taken inside Dolly’s house. The top pictures are quite interesting. She was given some condoms, which were made of silk at that time. It was suggested that she use them but she felt that they were a bad idea, condoms would never stop the spread of disease or prevent pregnancy. Not to waste them, she found another use for the condoms. She made little rosettes out of them and used them to decorate her shower curtain.
The photo with the double bed is Dolly’s bed. She “entertained” here in the early days but in her later days of “entertaining” she met a man whom she invited to share her bed for many years while she continued to “entertain” in another room. Apparently she cared about this man, even after she discovered he cheated on her. She demanded that he be faithful to her even though she continued to be a “working girl”. After his indiscretion she still allowed him to share her bed for several more years but never allowed him to enjoy her sexual favors again. Once he cheated on her it was the end of the intimate side of their relationship.
A display case is set up in the hallway outside Dolly’s bedroom. In it are many things that were in home including a generous lock of her braided hair and her personal vibrator with the box intact.
Before her death Dolly gave an extensive interview to a reporter who wrote a book about Dolly’s story. Dolly told the interview that she almost always worked alone. At one time or another there might be another girl working in the house but that was always temporary. Dolly ran the whole show herself.
