May 12 in San Antonio history...

Members of the San Antonio Automobile Club called for good roads and a bond issue to build them at a meeting in the Gunter Hotel.

Possibility of a tornado in the San Antonio area was forecast by the U.S. Weather Bureau.  Hail and winds reaching up to 50 or 60 miles per hour also were listed as possibilities.

The $100,000, 3.2 mile "Brackenridge Eagle" railroad track began carrying its first passengers.
