Thanks for getting back to me. TB that makes some sense it was rampanent then, I had an innoculation for that in the 1950's.
The poverty, poor diet and damp condition would of lead to
TB. I know in Canada in the 1970's TB was still common amongst the indigenous people.
All new parents who don't want their children to have childhood inoculations lead to these diseases coming back in even 1st. world countries.
