By the late 1890s the Kalgoorlie brothels had become a byword for degradation and the most flagrant in the English-speaking world.

The Sun newspaper campaigned against the outrageous displays by the prostitutes, the activities of their bludgers and the vested interests of the landlords and sly grog traders.

This book details that campaign and shows a vastly different old Kalgoorlie to that usually depicted.
