Harris's List: Miss Townsend



Harris's List: Miss Townsend

This is where Miss Townsend, late 18th century prostitute lived.

Location: 12 Gresse Street, London

Description: Reproduced from Harris's List of Covent Garden Ladies, 1793.

The God of love with all his darts,
Lives in her eyes to conquer hearts


This lady adds to a genteel person, an excellent understanding; having had good success, she has been prudent enough to be saving, so as to enable herself to appear in an elegant manner, and to be provided in case of an emergency.

She is visited by liberal company, for no others are welcome to her as mere visitors. She is about twenty, has a fair face, with delicate and well formed features, her forehead is beautifully spacious, and she has a very handsome mouth, with good teeth, and is an almost constant attendant at the places of amusement, where she is well known by the men of pleasure, and is held in estimation by them, being universally allowed to be a very desirable woman.

Note: image does not reflect the person but the theme.
