May 11 in San Antonio history...

1887
An old-fashioned prairie schooner broke down on Commerce and S. Alamo this morning due to the combined influence of extreme age and a hole in the street.

1908
Cow Street is renamed to Carey Avenue (later Hildebrand in 1928.)

1956
The post office here was making plans for June 14 when a 9-cent stamp featuring the Alamo would be released.
