Although legislation restricted commercial sex to Hay Street in Kalgoorlie from 1910 and Roe Street in Perth from 1920, madams had been operating in both places for decades. Sheryl Milentis has researched and will talk about the ladies who did business in Roe Street up until 1958.

The talk is open to anyone interested in the subject.
