Hot Weather Don'ts from 1913

Hot weather brings many issues, and  the July 1913 edition of the Crawfordsville Daily Journal offered advice on what to do with food during the summer months. Of course, Crawfordsville citizens were not without ice boxes (even then called "refrigerators") to keep food from spoiling quicker than usual (see our blog entry Crawfordsville Keeps It Cool), but housewives were still warned to "use their eyes and noses on everything they cook before feeding it to the family."


Ptomaine poisoning was once a serious concern in Montgomery County during the summertime.
