Pneumonia was often fatal. So it was mainly palliative care and a hope that things would improve on their own.

Bed rest, Jewish antibiotic(aka Chicken soup), some home / Traditional treatments. There are some herbal treatments that were used to Open the persons airways, bronchodilators.
Generally the death rate was very high approx 80 %.

Rest and fluids. Some home remedies but no antibiotics were known at that time.
