I need info on:
- Devil's Acre, San Francisco, CA (I can find it on a map and know it was home to several brothels, but can't find much else except book reviews for stuff set in London, England)
- street slang, preferably that used by the lower classes, in SF, CA
Both circa 1905 - early 1906 (immediately prior to the earthquake).
I found this, which is helpful: http://www.writersdreamtools.com/view/decades/default.asp?Decade=1900
I'm looking for things specifically from San Francisco, though. Do you guys have any suggestions?
Thanks in advance! I'm on dial-up and sharing a computer right now, so even though I'll try I may not be able to respond to everything (I'm really sorry if this ends up being the case), but I'd appreciate any help I can get.
