January 1 in San Antonio history...

1901
The fire department had a busy time before the closing of the nineteenth century Monday. Two alarms were turned in within an hour.

1951
San Antonio's greeting to 1951 was noisy, turbulent, completely Texan and remarkably safe. The first moments of the new year brought a rumbling barrage of fireworks, pistol shots and false fire alarms.

1961
Architects announced plans for a $1,000,000 12-story office building and 6-story parking garage for the Pioneer Casualty company at Martin and Navarro streets.
