Covent Garden Nun
Morning in Covent Garden by Spooner, 18th Century. Depicts Prostitutes meeting with clients outside Tom and Moll King's Coffee House
Between the 16th and 18th century, Covent Garden set the stage as London's region for the trade of sex and flesh. It was dubbed the "great square of Venus". Men combed the streets of Drury Lane in search of these delicate garden flowers with their "lists" in tow. The lists (The Covent Garden Magazine or Amorous Repository) was a guide that detailed the appearance, sexual skills, and fees of around 80 prostitutes, reviewing them as one would a movie or a restaurant for the benefit of the rakes, libertines and lechers of everyday London.
