The articles and letters by writers  such as Crosscut [T.H. Wilson] and reporters for The Sun, give the reader a clear understanding of  events at the time, the undercurrents and how high feelings were running on various issues such as strikes, pay, living expenses, dagoes, the company, bosses, life in the bush and so on. The articles are a rich and fertile field of information, and have been assembled into groups and then in chronological  order, so particular themes can be followed.
