July 26 in San Antonio history...

1896
The Ursuline Convent is now being thoroughly repainted in every part and all panels, walls, lintels and doors nicely grained. Such treatment of the entire building will do much to spark it up.

1905
The bartender at Main Plaza saloon was shot by a customer who claimed he got too little beer in his 10-cent bucket.

1934
Electricity and communications were paralyzed in San Antonio following what Col. W. B. Tuttle of the Public Serice Co. called the worst storm here in 20 years.
