Ladies of the Night  with Hearts of Gold

 

There is no doubt that the ladies of the night are associated with the Kings Cross and Darlinghurst areas.

We remember that these girls are people, often with a kind heart.

There are many famous Kings Cross girls from years gone by, many of whom were associated with the underworld, but they all had feelings wants and needs.

Our bollard tribute is for all the 'girls' who often really did have hearts of gold and, over time were delightfully depicted in cinema.

Our screen recollections include - Shirley Maclaine as "Irma La Douce", Shirley Jones in "Elmer Gantry", Vivien Leigh in "Waterloo Bridge", Donna Reed in "From here to Eternity" and more recently, Julia Roberts in "Pretty Woman".
