September 12 in San Antonio history...

1884
The Lone Star Brewery is opened for business.

1912
The project to widen Commerce Street is begun. During the four year widening project on Commerce Street many buildings were either totally demolished or lost several yards of their original structure. The new five story Alamo National Bank building, was physically raised and moved back while work continued uninterrupted within it. With the movement of the bank building the entire project came to almost $1.5 Million. This is the equivalent to around $21 Million in today’s money. The city took pride in the transformation being undertaken to keep San Antonio as the number one city in Texas.

1970
The first McDonald’s restaurant opens in San Antonio at 1330 S. Laredo St. (right).
