March 23 in San Antonio history...

The iron bridge ordered by our city authorities, has, some weeks ago, arrived at Indianola and is now waiting for better roads in order to be shipped to its destination.  (This will be the first iron bridge in the city, over Houston Street.)

Natural stone steps, constructed by the Franciscan Friars as part of the old mill at San Jose Mission, were restored today as they were in the days of the holy monks.  For years the steps had been hidden beneath earth and refuse.

Members of the City Library Board, meeting in special session today, made general plans for construction of three new branch libraries in the northeast, southwest and western sections of the city.
