Summary
The indelible public image of slumming is of limousines pullng up in Prohibition era Harlem, full of rich whites looking for great jazz and a good time; but Chad Heap reveals that the reality was far more widespread that this, and takes us from slumming as 'fashionable dissipation' in 1880s New York to gay nightclubs in 1930s Chicago
