1917 Photo Of Girls Exercise Class At Comanche High School

Posted on August 30, 2012 by Fredda Jones

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?

About Fredda Jones
From the time I was just a child, I could lose myself on my grandparents’ sprawling front porch, curled up in their porch swing. With the scent of roses in the air and the flutter of the flag in the breeze, I was protected, free to think little-girl thoughts and build little-girl castles in the air. Add a friend to the swing, and we could solve each and every one of our little-girl problems from that old swing. Today, I still find that there is nothing quite like a porch swing and a good friend for restoring order to an otherwise chaotic world. So grab a cup of coffee and come on over, join me in the swing, and let’s talk it over.

Love the picture! It reminds me of a picture of the girls basketball team at Edna Hill. My grandmother wanted to play basketball so bad, but her father was not going to allow his daughter to be running around in public with her bloomers showing.
