Does anyone remember the second location of C & L Cycle Shop? The original was located on the southwest corner of Broadway and 6th. In the early 60's it was moved nearer Pierce Bros. Cycle Shop, near the KONO studios on N. t. Marys.

Any info is appreciated.

Rancho,

Thanks. The Broadway and Grayson shop was the Harley Davidson dealership for San Antonio.
C & L Cycle was originally at Broadway and 6th. They later moved to...????

The Disappearing School.

Anyone know where/how information can be located regarding a no longer existent elementary school?

The School, (name unknown) was located on or near Brooklyn and McCullough in the middle and late 1940's.

It was obviously torn down to make way for a part of the medical complex. Any help is appreciated.

Find out the School District for the area of Brooklyn and McCullough.

Check with them. The elementary may no longer exist.

But they should have records or can steer you to those that have files.

I have seen the wedding certificate of James Bowie at the Bexar County
Courthouse. The original being written in Spanish and Bowie signed his first
name as "Santiago".
And this goes back to the 1800s.

Also, the city was not known as San Antonio in that period of history.
I can't recall right now the full name that was used.

But do remember "Bejar" being part of it.

Somehow the "Bejar Spurs" doesn't have the same impact!

Rancho,

Thanks for the reply. I believe it was/is SAISD, as it was almost downtown at the time.

Interesting you mentioned the Bowie display. If memory recalls, S A was known by the title of one of the missions.
I'm certain Mud, or another "long timer" ( notice no mention of the word OLD! ) can/will clarify the issue.

According to SAISD records, it was Eleanor Brackenride Elementary at
831 Brooklyn Ave., the address was 515 E.Quincy St., between
Brooklyn and McCullough avenues.

Most of these schools are no longer in existence, except for Pershing, which has moved from its
original building, now the site of IH 35 South service road between Walters & New Braunfels Ave.

And a Happy New year to you.

PWD...that's funny!.

I remember folks who would stand on the sidewalks around Houston St. and Alamo Plaza
and would speak in a loud tone to no one in particular.
Mostly ignored by people going about their business.

My mom would leave us kids around the Alamo Plaza while she went shopping.
We lived by the Victoria Courts downtown.

I kinda felt sorry for the speaker so I pretended I knew what he was talking about.
But he ignored me.
Probably annoyed that I was the only audience around.

Edit: This comment was made under the influence of PWD because that's the only
way I can stay warm tonight
