SpiritBear in his post, "Finds in Bibles", one of the finds was a American Red Cross instructions on the "Influenza Epidemic" in the 1918-1920 era. They were told to wear a mask when attending to patients.
This is a photo of my great-aunt, a nurse at that time, wearing her mask. The back of the photo has her name and 1918 flu epidemic.
Posted so you can see the reality of the time.
