May 12 in San Antonio history...

1913
Members of the San Antonio Automobile Club called for good roads and a bond issue to build them at a meeting in the Gunter Hotel.

1924
The Chamber of Commerce estimated San Antonio's population officially at 193,000 persons.

1953
Possibility of a tornado in the San Antonio area was forecast by the U.S. Weather Bureau. Hail and winds reaching up to 50 or 60 miles per hour were also listed as possibilities. (This was the same storm system that spawned an F5 tornado destroying downtown Waco the previous day.)
