August 23 in San Antonio history...

1908
Houston Street is to be paved from Nacogdoches to Santa Rosa. Everyone recognizes this as a step in the right direction but there are many more similar steps yet to be taken.

1925
A proposed ordinance that would require motor vehicle operators to obtain city licenses was held invalid by the city attorney. It was indicated the fight for the proposal would be continued before the Texas State Legislature.

1928
Charles Withers himself and his company brings "Withers' Opry" to the stage of the [old] Majestic Theater. Every line of this travesty of the old time variety shows is a riot of hilarity. There are also four other acts.
