In the 1940s i had scarlet fever from playing around grates and finished up spending time in Lodge Moor hospital.Parents were not allowed any contact with their children and had to view them through a glass window,also the children were given a number which was printed in a column in the Star newspaper as to their condition so people could see if they were improving.
