Most date fromMoreFrom plazas placed in Spanish times to the River Walk, one of the worlds renowned linear parks, San Antonio enjoys a broad variety of historic public spaces. Here they are uniquely portrayed in more than 165 vintage postcard images. Most date from the first half of the twentieth century, when the plazas, parks and River Walk were in transition to modern times.

This book visually documents the evolution of the River Walk and other landmark areas, as streetscapes change, and carriages fade away. Candy vendors ply Military Plaza, drop-ins are welcomed near the Alamo at the Plaza Bar, and cooks prepare supper at the weekly snake fry in Brackenridge Parks Reptile Gardens, as these vignettes of the passing scene give new insights into familiar places.
