Although this 1917 photo of a high school girls “Exercise Class” was taken in Comanche, Texas, I feel sure that this manner of dress was common for all Texas girls of the same age. In 1917, the high school would have been located where the Comanche Elementary School is today. I assume this class might have been held behind the building which would have been what became the J.B. Layne Elementary building.
Notice the goal post on the far right…or, I assume this is a goal post. Was the old track area at the elementary school once the football field?
