Sorry, I have a problem with wordiness and don't have the patience right now to edit myself...

For as long as the phrase has been in my conciousness, I've understood "Gaslight Fanny", to refer to an 1800s prostitute in the U.K. 'Gaslight' refers to the streetlamps of the day which were gas powered and lit by fire and, 'Fanny', apparently a popular name of the era, and in the context of which I speak, would refer to the 'street walkers' if you will, who stood under the gaslights while 'soliciting business' hence, Gaslight Fanny.

However, I just came across an interesting book to search out which tells another interesting and not too dissimilar story; Fanny by Gaslight http://everything2.com/title/Fanny+by+Gaslight
