10th doll in my series 7717 St. Charles Ave.
Madame Simone was a well known and respected Madame whose much desired girls worked Storyville. She owned and operated an immense and upscale brothel in The District down on Basin Street. Her prostitution business was a good one and she had been able to afford herself a nice home uptown at 7717 St. Charles Ave. Her brothel was among the nicest in The District and her gentlemen clients included politicians and wealthy businessmen, many of whom were now her uptown neighbors. The ladies of her new neighborhood didn't appreciate Madame Simone and her 'business' and felt she was a disgrace. One evening when Madame Simon was attending to the brothel they broke into 7717 St. Charles Ave and slipped an overdose of morphine into Madame Simon's brandy snifter. She is buried in cemetery No. 1 at Washington and Prytania.
