Death Reveals Woman Posed as Man

May 25, 1910, Woman Posed as Man
May 25, 1910: Louis Rogers drank and cursed with other workmen and held her own at hard labor. Only in death was it revealed that Rogers was a woman. It would be interesting to know more about her, but I can’t find anything further in The Times.

Good for Louis! At this late date, there's no way to know if he was transgendered, lesbian, or just needed a job.
