"I trailed along all the way down to the Glass House Club"

The Glass House Club does not exist in Portland but its name may have been suggested by the Glass House Tavern on Sandy Blvd, Portland, which is a Gay and Lesbian bar.

The Glass House Club is a fetish strip venue where Miranda and the other girls show off their physical abnormalities to tittilate the audience. In many ways the club is another form of sideshow, and Miranda's working here suggests thatly has she inherited her parent's genetic legacy, but also their method of exploiting it.

It is interesting to note that the other performers mentioned here, Denise the long haired girl and Paulette the pre-op transsexual, are also examples of the type of performers who could be seen in a typical 1950s sideshow.
