Musée Conti- Return to Basin Street

Thanks to Houses of Wax reader Purple Peanut for these recent pictures from Musée Conti's Basin Street tableau. As you can see, the scene looks similar to the way it did in the vintage image. The only difference is that in the background we can see the Razzy Dazzy Spasm Band. These figures used to belong to the Jelly Roll Morton scene, but are now here in the Storyville set.

The prostitute is pick pocketing the sailor, which was not clearly seen in my first Basin Street post.

A closer view of the prostitutes fighting.

And a close up of the action.

The taller dark hair woman seems to be losing the fight.

The red head appears more angry. Notice the tape keeping her hand connected to her arm.
