The Express-News dedicates its new building at the corner of Avenue E and 3rd streets (right).  The day is inauspicious due to the second day of panic selling on Wall Street.  The stock market crash reaches its crescendo today and will come to be known as “Black Tuesday.”

Arthur “Hap” Veltman, an active developer of food and drink establishments and assorted commercial properties in San Antonio, says he has found a buyer for his holdings in a large downtown nightclub, the Bonham Exchange at 411 Bonham.  However, the San Antonio developer did not reveal who the buyer is.
