Pictures Of Montreal Prostitutes From The 1940's

If you need photo evidence that Montreal has always been a city of sin, here it is. Prostitution has been a part of Montreal since the 1940's, and those thinking it was any classier back then can see how they're wrong. No matter what, Montreal is gonna have an underworld of hookers and hustlers so why fight it? Take a look at some of Montreal's crime-history with these pretty ladies from the 1940's. These  gals (hopefully) saw better days.

Thanks to the Huffington Post for compiling these classicmug shots.

Get weird grandma vibes off of these images? Think these ladies look classy or trashy? Let us know in the comments below.
