June 7 in San Antonio history…

1953
The historic Nic Tengg home, owned by the Tengg family for over 101 years, has been sold to Joske’s of Texas as an addition to the store’s parking lot.  The two-story wood, brick and adobe house – long a landmark at 326 E. Crockett St. – will end its colorful career as it gives way to progress and a growing, bustling city.

1976
Canadian rock trio Rush plays Municipal Auditorium in support of their “2112” album.  Thin Lizzy and Styx are also on the bill.

1978
Joske’s and KZ-100 radio sponsor a party at the Arneson River Theater for the new movie “Grease.”  Producer Alan Carr and actor Jeff Conaway appear at the event.  Olivia Newton-John is scheduled to appear but is forced to cancel due to a 102-degree fever.
