Josephine, her Gasworks Hotel and especially the Marsson affair were the subject of many newspaper reports. In case you missed the newspapers you can still read them online courtesy of the National Library of Australia’s Trove Digitised Newspapers. Here are the major ones.

 

If the newspaper reports interest you, they make most sense after reading the book. After following a link, you can quickly find text in longer articles by searching for a relevant keyword (e.g. “till”, “Marsson”).
