August 8 in San Antonio history…

1908
San Antonio policemen made considerable fun of a new school for policemen in Fort Worth. The idea of full-grown husky cops going to school struck the local boys as amusing. Chief Mauermann made it clear that he feels his men need no schooling.

1918 – World War I
The Manhattan Cafe closed at midnight for two days due to “violations of food regulations.”

1987
The doors close for the final time on the downtown Joske’s store to prepare for a storewide renovation and transformation into Dillard’s.
