Anderson, political boss of Storyville and a two-term member of the state legislature,
became one of Josie's closest friends and, upon her retirement in 1909, bought a large portion of her business. No tour
of New Orleans at the turn of the century was complete without a visit to Storyville, which always began at Anderson's
saloon, moved on to the plush and velvet parlors of the Arlington, and ended up in the seamier districts.
