The bracelets below were a 21st Birthday gift to Aunt Beth from Aunty Stella and, judging by the letter, they seem to have been heirlooms already. In family-tree terms, Stella was the only daughter of William and Elizabeth McCoy; Beth was the eldest daughter of William and Ellen McCoy – although unlikely there’s anyone who didn’t know Aunt Beth.
I hold these items but have no idea when Aunt Beth gave them into my keeping. One day we might locate Stella’s gr-grandchildren and I’ll pass them on. Some photos with annotations.

A little trivial observation is that the spot that photographs were taken, perhaps with some frequency, was what looks like a corner part of the hospital building.
This is one my grandfather took, date unknown, but it is the same spot the Stella and co., photo was taken (above).
