For decades, the turkey plant in Comanche provided jobs for the people of Comanche. I recently posted a 1957 photo of the plant with some very “sterile” looking workers, in uniforms that could rival any nurse of that era.
Today’s photo of that same plant is from a much earlier time, probably the very early 1920s, and you will see that the plant looks very different from that vantage point. From what Rickey tells me, John Haile told him that the turkey plant was in the west end what was the old Durham Pecan plant/ice house/cheese plant. If you know more than that, please let us know!
This photo was provided to us by Gale Carpenter Easley, and the young man standing second from the right is her grandfather John “Pop” Carpenter.
If you can help identify any of these other men, please do so in the contact boxes below. Thanks! Also, if you have photos of old Comanche businesses, please let Fredda know. We would love to have a copy for the museum.
