They said the woman, who they identify as a "known prostitute," had blood on her hands, face and dress.

The unreliability of statistics during the 19th century makes it unclear if prostitution was increasing or decreasing during this period, but there is no doubt that Victorians during the s and s thought that prostitution and venereal disease as sexually transmitted infections were called then were increasing. A series of small books, The Swell's Night Guides, listed the advantages and drawbacks of various theatres for men seeking pleasure, and gave advice on how to approach actresses. It warned men not to offer them money directly, but to say they wanted to hire them for private theatricals. London's dockyards had a large population of prostitutes, and Granby Street, beside Waterloo Station , was well known for its "half naked" women in the windows. Very few servicemen were permitted to marry, and even those were not given an allowance to support their wives, which occasionally lured them to become prostitutes as well.
