April 29 in San Antonio history...

The old central dome of San Fernando Cathedral is demolished.

Demolition is begun on the State Theater on the northwest corner of Flores and Houston streets (right). This theater was originally named the Majestic and opened in 1913.   Acts such as  Mae West, The Marx Brothers and Houdini all appeared there. The name was changed to the State when the current Majestic Theater was constructed in 1929.

The Cody branch of the San Antonio Public Library system opens for business.
