Had a cousin that worked at one next to Century South or in South Park Mall. Who remembers Sportsman's Baliwick. My bosses brother kept that place in business single-handedly.

Thanks Mud! Now we know the namesake of W.W. White Road. Pilot killed in a crash over Kelly AFB in 1924.

You know Express News Revived the Light's limited addition free and home delivered. This in hopes of winning back subscribers to the EN. I agree with Outafocus. I think we always got the Light and liked it best.

I think they consolidated the Chrysler-Plymouth dealership at a new facility located at 2800 Broadway around 1960.

Jack Rieger Chrysler-Plymouth relocated from 900 Broadway to the SE corner of San Pedro & Basse around the early to mid 1960s. That dealership became J.D. Castrejana in the late 1970s before closing for good. It became a U-Haul rental center.
Hello. Do you have any recollection of a 1964 Plymouth Savoy being campaigned by Jack Rieger Chrysler-Plymouth?

No, that's not the namesake of W.W. White Road. The pilot in the article had the same initials but did not die. If you read the caption closely, he parachuted to safety.

W. W. White Road is named for William Womack White who was a railroad man and landowner in the area. He died Sept. 8, 1935.

Thanks for the correction. I can't even find the article I misread now. Do you have any info on this namesake?

Go to the sixth floor of the San Antonio Central Library. There is a file on W. W. White in the Texana/Genealogy Dept.
