This blacksmith shop was owned in 1900 by J.J. Smith of De Leon, Texas who was the father of Hiram Smith. Mr. Smith is pictured on the left, a hired man in the middle, and Sam Short is on the right.
I have taken this from my 1986 Comanche County History calendar. If you happen to have this photo, Texans United would love to have a copy of it. It was submitted to the calendar committee by the Comanche Chief.
