November 26 in San Antonio history…

1890
The first regular trip in San Antonio of an electric motor car was made on the Alamo Electric Street Railway Company’s track from Navarro Street to the International Fair Grounds, south of the city (Thompson-Houston system).  Since the date, all the main street car lines adopted electric motor cars of this and the Sprague system, replacing mule-drawn streetcars.

1928
Carey Avenue is renamed to Hildebrand Avenue.

1963
The San Antonio Express newspaper announced that $75 million was approved in Austin yesterday for road work in San Antonio and South Texas.  Included in the program is construction of a key leg of Interstate 37 from Delaware St. south to Dauchy Road and on the south city limits at Interstate Loop 410 near Brooks Air Force base.  This expressway will provide a southeast access to the Hemis Fair site, running within about 16 blocks of the grounds.
