All went reasonably well until...

The idea of "respectability" was growing and groups like the Salvation Army and the church missions saw prostitution as primarily a moral issue rather than an economic one.

Soliciting in the streets was criminalised in 1891, and the Police Offences Act 1907 made it illegal for landlords and madams to profit from prostitution.

This effectively put the flash brothels out of business and sent Victoria into an era of protection rackets and women working under the surveillance and control of men.
