July 3 in San Antonio history...

1897
A watermelon party on trolley will be run over the Edison Company's lines to Scheuermeyer's Park today. There will be three hours riding and an hour to eat the juicy red fruit.

1906
The city council appropriated $4,000 for the Laurel Heights sewers and $4,500 for a new fire station on Travis St.

1947
If perspiration could add moisture to fields and pastures, Bexar County farmers and ranchers would enjoy a happier June. It was the driest June since 1939 with only .31 of an inch of rain.
