Comanche, Texas Looking Up N. Houston Street

 I found this great photo in an old Comanche Chief. The original was owned by Ruby Lee Loftis, and the caption indicates that the photographer was standing on West Grand Street in Comanche and looking up North Houston Street when he took the picture.

You will notice both the wagon and the automobile parked on the street. Obviously, that part of town had electricity by the time this photograph was taken, and the street was not paved. If you can give me a point of reference as to a possible date on this photo, I would really appreciate it!

About Fredda Jones

Fredda Davis Jones was raised “in the country” in Comanche County and learned very early that creativity and innovation are traits that can flourish even in small-town Texas and that with enough effort, indeed nothing is impossible, including being married to the same man for over 40 years! Rickey and Fredda have 2 children, 5 grandchildren, and a crazy life that includes sitting in the bleachers several times a week. The rest of her time is spent creating great content for texansunited.com and marketing small-town Texas.

    Fredda, since there is a car as well as wagons in the picture, I believe this was probably abou 1918 -1920. Also, this picture had belonged to Ruby Lee Loftis. She was a dear friend to me, and I remember her telling me (and I thought that she was 10 years older than God) about how hard she worked trying to keep her mind active. She worked all kinds of cross word puzzles, mind games and other things, every day. I treasure the memory of Ruby Lee Loftis. Missy Jones
