Red light District, House of Lancaster 1399- 2013. (Dodging the bellow))

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

House of Lancaster, was a branch of the royal House of Plantagenet.The family provided England with three kings: Henry IV of England, who ruled 1399–1413; Henry V of England, who ruled 1413–1422; and Henry VI of England and (II of) France, who ruled 1422–1461 and 1470–1471.

Much later, they opened this branch in Toronto.... ;-)

Few hours later, after taking this shot, (Jan 11, 2013), there was a man shot in this strip club!! Kyle Henry!!!! was later charged with this crime. Coincidence? I think NOT! The suspect name was Henry. He must have been one of the original Lancasterians ;-). Perhaps Henry CXVII ;-)

The follow up story on the news only said, that the man was shot in the face, but the reason for shooting was not revealed.

P.S. - Full disclosure: I was inside once, in my college days with my classmates.

The city leaders try to turn the red lights off even on this establishment, but the red light will just flicker in another part of town...

Selling sex, has surely suffered thanks to internet, This is one old profession where the lights will always shine...
