I wanna know the meaning of "jungle town" and "sporting woman" in the following context from Hemingway's To Have and Have Not:
We stopped the car in back of this place and went into the kitchen where the man's wife was cooking at a stove. "Hello, Freda," Harry said to her. "Where's Bee-lips?" He's right in there, Harry. Hello, Albert." "Hello, Miss Richards," I said. I knew her ever since she used to be in jungle town, but two or three of the hardest working married women in town used to be sporting women and this was a hard working woman, I tell you that.
Miss Richards used to be a sporting woman but, after getting married, became a hard working woman?
