Description: 

From the outside "Miss Reba's," the brothel where Popeye takes Temple, is one of a number of "dingy three-storey houses" on "a narrow dingy street of frame houses and junk yards" (142, 191). One end of the street lies close to the Mississippi River (it starts at "the foot of the bluff below Main Street," 142); at the other end is one of the city's trolley lines. Despite its nondescript appearance the brothel, at least according to Reba, is a very well known establishment, with a clientele that includes "bankers, lawyers, doctors - all of them" (143).
