De Leon Band In Old Comanche, Texas

Can you even imagine marching down Highway 377 today? I’m afraid when I cross it using the light! Life was just simpler back then, wasn’t it?

Having said that, do you recognize any of these long ago band students?* And look at the old businesses that you can see of Comanche in the background. And then…look at the cars of the day. Cool! If you have names to share, please put them in the comment boxes below.

*These photos were actually given to me to use for the new heritage center in Comanche, which is actually the old Higginbotham building, which can be seen in this photo. However, when I saw these band members, I just had to share with you.

About Fredda Jones

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.

    To Fredda Jones:

    I came upon your posts regarding the Bearcat Band in doing research on Graham Smoot. My grandparents lived in Comanche (1924-1939) and ran a successful dry goods store on the Square. My father and his two brothers were high school musicians under the direction of Pat Howard. I have a lot of Comanche family history and am writing a book about the Texas Centennial that integrates much of that information. I live in an 1872 home we restored just south of Evant. I enjoyed your posts.
