June 2 in San Antonio history…

1934
Officials announced completion of a federally-financed restoration job on San Antonio’s San Jose mission.

1963
The Westfall branch library opens.

1966
The proposal of the Aerial Transportation Company to install and operate a skyride in Hemisfair and the downtown area was approved today by the City Council.  Approval of the council was necessary since the ride, following the six-month fair, will become the property of the city. The contract gives the Aerial Transportation Company, comprised of Randy Clay, Austin Hemphill and B.J. “Red” McCombs, a 15-year concession on the ride following the fair.  During that period, the company will pay the city 28 percent of the gross revenues.
