GUEST,John Garst Origin or title of House of the Rising Sun? (184* d) RE: Origin or title of House of the Rising Sun? 16 Sep 05


From Al Rose, Storyville, p 27:

From The Mascot, October 27, 1894 (before Storyville), a report of a meeting of the Society of Venus and Bacchus:

"...Miss Julia Dean stated stated that she had been informed that a Japanese house had been opened on Customhouse Street at Annie Merrit's old stand, and that it should be discountenanced as much as possible. Miss Wilcox said that she was sure the Japs were niggers dressed up."

I wish I knew more about this "Japanese house."
