Well, I'd only had one response via the blog regarding the three women I suspect are all the same person, my great-grandmother Justina HODICK. I also showed the photos at work in printed form. Here is the consensus (all speculation):

And you thought there would be no math!! Keeping in mind that the pictures are not the best quality and no one was an expert on such things, all the people polled agreed with the above conclusion.

Here are the full versions of the above pictures:

So the question now is, are these two pictures of the same man? Or two pictures of two different men? Important notice about the full-scale picture of the man on the left: The location of the studio on the "postcard" is Nanticoke, PA, where my dad's family lived. Not a clincher, but a consideration for certain. Also, my own comparisons see similarities in the above person/people's noses and ears, but not so much in the eyes. But they certainly bear close enough resemblance to each other that if they are not the same person, perhaps they were brothers?
I beg of my readers, what do you think?
