October 27 in San Antonio history...


1889
Demand continues for horned frogs at No. 31 Soledad where payment of $1.20 a dozen is made. Also wanted are 2,000 rattlesnake skins.

1892
Having no city taxes to pay in Alamo Heights should be sufficient reason in itself to induce some buyers of lots to locate there. Those of us who don't live there are regretting it.

1938
Sears, Roebuck & Co. moves from the Transit Tower location to their new downtown headquarters at Romana Plaza. In 1995, this location would become the San Antonio Public Library.
