November 9 in San Antonio history…

1915
Future possibilities of the wireless telephone as a medium of communication were said to be practically unlimited by an official of the Southwestern Telephone and Telegraph Co. The official was a visitor in the city.

1926
San Antonio’s ancient Governor’s Palace, once the playhouse and home of royalty, has fallen into ruin and disrepair. It is now mostly small clothier shops, with part of the crumbling walls used as a clothes rack.

1963
Bexar County voters registered 18,372 to 15,664 in favor of a statewide amendment to repeal Texas’s 61-year-old poll tax.  Unfortunately, the rest of the state was much less progressive and the poll tax remains in place.
