Town Home Bar !Flu pandemic!

In 1918 a flu pandemic rapidly took hold of the people in Wellington! Ambulances were close by to town hall .The men were stopping by the bars so families were complaining that the men were too drunk to relieve the workers So town hall handed out alcohol and became known as Town Hall Bar!The health officer had closed the bars down.Alcohol was used as a Prevenitive As quinine tablets were used to prevent the flu.camphor bags were used as a Prevenitive,
Garlic and onions which my mother used also for sickness.Kerosene sprinkled on sugar.Tobacco was used which I had never heard of.My mother used tobacco on a bee sting.This flu pandemic killed Sarah Jane Hamilton 1885-1918 wife of Albert Leonard Roset.Sarah died 25 November 1918.
