Harris's List of Covent-Garden Ladies was an 18th Century directory of London Prostitutes.

Romantic London has mapped 93 entries in the directory.

From the website:

Harris’s List is lewd and frequently misogynistic, romanticising prostitution while largely silencing the women involved.  It commonly fails to account for (and occasionally seems uncomfortably to relish) the suffering and exploitation of those whose histories it affects to encompass.  It is sometimes compelling as a composition, but its main use for modern audiences is as a record both of a deeply unpleasant side of eighteenth-century London and of the social attitudes which fostered the kinds of commerce and objectification which it embodies.
