in the backyard . . .

Notice the lady is wearing one of those tight fitting bangles just above her elbow.  Presumed mother and daughter, possibly 1940s, post war.

  1. Are those bangles strictly for style or is there some theory that there is a health benefit from wearing them? I noticed when Jeff Beck plays guitar he has a stack of them on. The titanium necklaces worn by baseball players over here supposably alleviates pain and fatigue. Just curious!

  2. Yes, people wear copper bracelets to ease rheumatic/arthritic pain, but I think this one might be fashion. I hadn't heard about the titanium ones.
