August 26 in San Antonio history...

1936
The first parking meters arrive and are installed.

1937
Another bit of San Antonio's romantic atmosphere - the portable chili stands on Haymarket Plaza - has vanished before the onslaught of civilization in the form of the city's sanitation law. The matter has been kept under wraps for fear civic organizations would contest the passing of the "chili queens."

1946
San Antonio's traffic situation has been held the worst in the state by a representative of the National Safety Council.
