Cynthia Payne at The Adelphi Hotel, Liverpool.

Mark McNulty (Liverpool, United Kingdom) on 8 March 2009 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

This is the former English party hostess who stood trial in the 80's for being a madam and running a brothel. She later appeared on chat shows and wrote a book of her experiences as well as doing the lecture circuit and having a film or two made about her life. This photograph was taken in her room at The Adelphi where she was appearing as part of The Festival Of Comedy around 1990. Apparently, her mouth only forms her favourite smile if she's just said one of town words which are 'sex' and 'money' and I had to count her in on each photo so she could say them. 123 'Sex', 123 'money'!
