May 10 in San Antonio history...

1904
Sugar-coated breakfast bacon was advertised at the Paul Maureaux grocery on W. Commerce at 13 cents a pound.

1912
Summer's advent in going to be observed by the opening for the season of the "Top o' the Town," the St. Anthony Hotel roof garden.

1932
The USS Akron, mightiest of the dirigibles, passed over the Smith-Young Tower at dusk yesterday. Harold O. Rosendahl, 1934 W. Magnolia, sent a message to his brother Charles E. Rosendahl, commanding the ship. (The Akron would be involved in an accident the next day in San Diego leading to the deaths of two Navy sailors.)
