The 5th edition of I Smile for the Camera asks participants to show off the "Crowning Glories": Those Mahvelous hairstyles of our ancestors. I hope you enjoy my extensive collection of hairstyle do's and don'ts.

The Hodick Family 1918, Nanticoke, PA
Mary Hodick McHugh, ca. 1920.
Vesta, Mary, Celia Hodick, ca. 1920's.
Possibly the Hodick men.

My dad's cousin Jerry, ca. 1950's.

Hodick Sisters.

Mrs. Williams, Janet, and Blanche Doyle-Tighe.

My mother, Jean O'Rourke, ca. 1946.

Catherine Hoover, Neil Johnson, Ann McQueen-Tighe, Jane Williams-Johnson, Regina Doyle-O'Rourke.

Gotta love it! Leo and Jack, I believe.
Joseph McHugh, Jack Thomas and John "Jack" Hodick. Gotta love this one, too!.

The Breaker Girls, Luzerne Cty, PA.

I believe this is my grandmother Mary Hodick (McHugh)'s sister, Sue.

This one was labeled "Gma Nahadil's Sister's Daughter". The name on the photo that I edited out said "Helen".
My mother with two of her cousins, Bobby and Jackie. Probably taken in Niagara Falls, NY ca. 1945.

James O'Rourke. I believe this was my mother's grandfather James, not her father James? Perhaps Aunt Joyce can clarify for me.
My mother's brother, James (1929-2005).
This photo had the words "Hinky Eyes" on the back. It may be my father's uncle Edward and his wife Isabel, but I'm not sure. I'll have to call Tom and ask him to check it out.

Mary Hodick McHUGH on her wedding day in 1925.
