The tale of Limestone Lizzie

By Solidarity - 27 August 2012 50

Hey guys,

Someone just told me a quick story about some prostitute named Limestone Lizzie… Sounds like a bit of a story, anyone got any stories to tell? Did she actually exist?

Cheers

Yes, she exists. I believe she was in the news a few years back but I can’t remember what for?

She definitely existed around 15 years ago. The rumour is that she is dead now. The other rumour is that someone made a website about her back in the day.

One thing that is true is a really churchy Defence colleague of mine once pulled over genuinely to see if she needed a lift. She then proceeded to rattle off prices and he floored it in disgust.

Limestone Lizzie aka Mary is not a myth. In fact, after not seeing her turning tricks on Limestone Avenue for a few years, I saw her twice last week between 4:30pm and 4:45pm standing near the Mt. Ainslie turnoff trying to wave down traffic (times inserted for the lonely and desperate).

Yeah she is real. Heard a lot of story’s about her but don’t know if any are true. But I did used to see her every day around maybe 8 years ago driving to jobs. Used to wear a lot of leapord print. She disappeared and a more younger, attractive woman took over for maybe 6 monthes then she disappeared as well.

Limestone lizzie kind of reminds me of the junkie gf of the window washer on northbourne. She wore clothes that from a distance made her look like a young woman but up close a drugged out mess of a human.

Used to see her doing the walk between the war memorial and Mt Ainslie turnoff when we were running rental cars between the Airport and city around 2000. I heard she died 5 or so years ago.

Sorry, no real “stories” to tell. Not even the most deviate of my co-workers would go there, although several did stop to find out her rates.

A very real person, and yes she died in 2007. I accompanied a close friend who was up on a drink driving charge in the early 00’s and she was there fronting for her 188th time for solicitation.She certainly lit the courtroom up with her actions and colourful language. I recall her ‘patch’ was between ADFA and the war memorial in the late afternoons.

It would be truly extraordinary if Original Lizzy were still doing a trade.
Some people believe she finally moved somewhere warm, others that she died in 2007, and a small few believe she merely became the Stig.

Although unfortunate people buying franchises with the Lizzy name to gain a loyal customer base holds a certain comedic appeal.

I wonder if anyone at all remembers her real name?

She is real and not a fable/myth. I heard she had been walking that patch for decades.

‘Limestone Lizzie’ – I can see the next folksy public art sculpture coming along right now.

She existed and was a nuisance – once I had to swerve to avoid her as she’d “strayed” onto the road. Not sure who was more pathetic, her or the men who picked her up.

I could get behind public art sculptures of local characters like Limestone Lizzy.

Lindsay the Window Washer is amazingly resilient for a bloke who’s looked to be at death’s door for the last five years, but when he finally drops off the twig I’d love to see a statue of him on his chosen corner. Mind you, he could well outlive me at this rate.
