A Free Talk by Lindsay Vallance

Turn-of-the-century Fernie was a brawling, sprawling boomtown, with all the amenities a single man could want: bars, boxing rings, pool halls, opera houses...and of course, prostitution.

Learn about the women who lived and worked in the 'Restricted Districts' across the Elk Valley between Fernie's founding in 1898 and the end of World War 1.
