High mortality rates, invention of baby Murder bottles. Limited medical knowledge. Lives shown through the changes during the Industrial revolution. The First World War, introduction of Gas Masks, and new vicious weapons used. Medals won. Men lost. The fun twenties. The Depression, the Means test. The effects on many during the Second world War.
