April 1 in San Antonio history...

1937
Crowds gasp in amazement as oil is struck on the grounds of the Alamo.  The well is expected to produce 50,000 barrels a day.

1938
A giant meteor smashes into the Tower Life Building (right).

1949
A photograph of the Goodyear blimp moored to the Transit Tower is shown on the front page of the San Antonio Light.  It’s just an April Fool’s joke.  The blimp is in San Antonio for a week but it is being kept at Municipal Airport.  In fact, all of these were April Fool’s photos from the newspapers.
