Join me on Substack for my Amazons of Paris newsletter and find out:
- Who was Zephora Furr and what connects her to the Beatles, the Berlin Wall, and a Polish prince?
- Which courtesan competed in one of the earliest Olympics?
- Which Hippodrome stuntwoman went on to a career in crime?
- How a horse walked a tightrope in nineteenth-century Paris.
A new issue is due as soon as I get permission to use a key image.
