News & Announcements

August 5 in San Antonio history...

1896
The Alamo souvenir booth has been closed for the summer months, as the keep says the times are too hard for people to buy patriotic emblems, etc.

1918 – World War I
A new order to save fuel, already in effect in most places, becomes operative here tonight.  The order requires that street lights be kept to a minimum and that lights for display and illumination of business houses be reduced to absolute necessity.  It designates Monday and Tuesday nights each week as “lightless nights.”

1922
San Antonio’s first radio station (WJAE) begins broadcasting, but lasts only a few months.
