October 14 in San Antonio history…
Work on the Riverside Theater, part of the beautification project, is nearing completion. San Antonians may soon be watching stage shows and movies from the river bank.
Elvis Presley with his band, Scotty Moore, Bill Black and D.J. Fontana, played two shows at the Bexar County Coliseum to thousands of swooning, screaming, mainly female, fans. It was the third appearance for Elvis in San Antonio in 1956. (photo from the Institute of Texan Cultures San Antonio Light Collection.)
