Golda Gore Foreman, Corene Steward, More Need Your Help!

If you can help identify these ladies, I’m sure there are families somewhere who would love to have this photo. Below you will find what Vickie Gore Harvick and Missy Cox Jones know about the identities of two of the ladies. They are standing in front of businesses on the east side of the square in Comanche. I would be very interested in knowing exactly what it is that stands above the vehicle that appears to be a tub looking speaker.


“The tall girl on the left in the back row [two ladies on back row]  is my dear cousin, Corene Steward. This was about the time of the army camp at Camp Bowie. To the left is the dry goods store Hoffman’s. Corene worked there. Also, see the top sign for Roberson’s Sisters, a very nice dry goods story. The ladies are standing in front of a sign, probably a sale from Hoffman”s store. Corene was living at a rooming house on East Grand street, and had a roommate. Later she worked at Higginbotham’s in Comanche. A sweet, lovely girl.” -Missy Jones

“The lady on the far left is Golda Gore Foreman.” -Vickie Harvick

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 and marketing small-town Texas.

    I remember Mr. Sol Hoffman very well. My dear cousin Corene Steward was working there, and also he had a good line of ladies ready-to-wear clothes, also men’s clothes and shoes. Mr. Hoffman was a very good salesman, notice the pickup with the signs on it, advertising a big sale. Also, notice the audio equipment, he could play music and talk clothes as he drove down the street.
    Also, the girl standing to Corene’s left is Oma Lee Jones. She later was working at Higginbotham’s with Corene. the Comanche Historical Museum has two pictures of the employees (men and women) of Higginbotham’s, this is in the Comanche room, and we received that courtesy of Tess Chapman Wilson. Thanks, Tess for sharing this with us.
    These two pictures has all of the men and women sales people pictured and identified. Missy Jones
