I don't believe that it's ever been confirmed or denied (Jeff, help me out here) that Jeff's Parlor ever was a brothel. It was however, Soapy's gambling den, bar, and home base. But for the sake of our story here, we're going to say that it's a brothel as well. I'm also not sure if the use of the dolls went outside of Skagway and the Klondike. If anyone's so interested, look up the Red Onion in Skagway-you can still buy one!
