    Birmingham Sporting Houses

    "This photograph made in 1957 shows the two most famous "sporting houses" ever in Birmingham. The "White House" to the right was owned and operated by Madame Barfield. The house to the left was operated by Blanche Bernard, who was "always a lady." By 1920, the houses still stood. However, the Red Light District had been abolished and the two famous Madames no longer lived there. These houses were on Ave. A or 1st Avenue South between 22nd and 23rd Streets. They face northerly." - William H. Brantley

    Re: Birmingham Sporting Houses

    So these houses stood very near the old Protective Life Insurance building?

    I'll work for Gumbo.
