Newest post: "Typhoid and Toilet Slops..."...I examine the 89 deaths due to typhoid from 1894 through 1910..including my great uncle Garrett "Edgar" Rabenold's typhoid death in 1906.
It includes one of a kind, never before published photos of some deploarble overflowing privies in Lehighton and how the Baer Silk mill polluted the waters the LVRR collected ice from in winter, and kids swam in in the summer.
Enjoy! May your Holidays be Food Poisoning free!...
