No mask, no streetcar. In Seattle during the Spanish flu one had to have a face mask if you wanted to get on a streetcar.

Compulsory mask – State Library of New South Wales, 1919

The Flickr Commons entry has this note:

The skull and crossbones on the mask was a joke, not part of the mask as issued, in an attempt to halt the disease. 12,000 died in Australia and between 20-100 million around the world, more than were killed in the War

flu fighters

LOC, Flu Fighters, Montenegro, 1918

Healthcare workers with the American Red Cross. They went to Montenegro to care for small pox and typhus patients. Then the Spanish Flu broke out and brought them more patients.

Sepia Saturday

Time for another Sepia Saturday post, time to take a look back in history. Sepia Saturday challenges bloggers to share images and posts of bygone days. This week we’re inspired to find photos based on the photo above.

I accept this challenge and sought out photos of libraries. This prompt is fitting as it in the US we’re finishing National Library Week.

Stitt Library at BUMED, 1902

From the Navy Medicine Flickr Commons collection, this library had a telescope inside. That’s where the stairs must lead to.

In Mudgee, Gulgong, Australia, 1878

From State Library of New South Wales – While I admit I love the elegant, stately libraries of city centers, this simple, rustic library tugs at my heartstrings. I love how this man started a library out in the wilderness.

Carnegie Library, Greenville, Texas, 1904

During the late 19th and early 20th century, tycoon Andrew Carnegie built libraries in the US and around the world. If a town applied for the program and promised to maintain a library staff and collection, they could receive funds to build what was then known as a Carnegie Library. Above and below are two examples of the grand libraries.
