    Children of this era died of Scarlet Fever, had nothing to do with how they were dressed. My Grandmother lost her brither, and sister for whom I was named, to Scarlet Fever. However, parents today would be well served to keep hats on their babies in the summer, as well as winter.No common sense, even today.
