January 14 in San Antonio history…

1927
“Hands off” will be a suggestion made to all couples using the matrimonial parlor to be established in the Beacon Hill Baptist Church. Even kissing by engaged couples will be banned on grounds it is too intimate.

1974
San Antonio drivers are dismayed as the speed limit drops to the federally-mandated 55 mph at one minute after midnight.  The limit will remain at the “double-nickel” until Congress lifted all federal speed limit controls in the November 28, 1995, National Highway Designation Act, returning all speed limit determination authority to the states effective December 8, 1995.

2010
The Balcones Heights shopping mall built as Wonderland Mall in 1960, renamed Crossroads Mall in 1987, changes its name again to “Wonderland of the Americas.”
