September 5 in San Antonio history…

Today was house cleaning day at the Grand Opera House but without benefit of broom or dust pan. The work is done by a small nozzle at the end of a long rubber hose. Dirt is drawn through the hose into two tanks. The device is called a vacuum cleaner.

St. Gerard’s High School  (right) is dedicated.

The mercury reaches 111 degrees – the hottest day in San Antonio history.
