Dear Portal friends: Do you enjoy having history at your fingertips? We’ve appreciated your support over the years, and need your help to keep history alive. Here’s the deal: we’ve received a Challenge Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Now it’s time to keep our word and raise matching funds for the Cathy Nelson Hartman Portal to Texas History Endowment. If even half the people who use the Portal this month give $5, we’d meet our $1.5 million goal immediately! All donations are tax-deductible and support Texas history: yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

135 South Lot No. 161- multi-family dwelling

Description:

Two black and white photos of 135 South, Lot No. 161, San Antonio, Texas. It is a single story white home with a chimney in the rear of the home. The top photo is of the front of the house and there is a car in the front yard on the left side of the house and another white car in the right bottom corner of the picture. There is a chair on the left side of the front door and what looks like a sofa on the right side of the front door on the porch. Also to the right of the front door are two windows. The porch is supported by ornate iron supports. There are two large, mature trees on either side of the house. In the second photo is the right side of the home with two windows and there are three cars parked alongside the house, the last one being a Volkswagon Beetle. The roof has two gables and the chimney in the back of the house is visible. The residence is located in an area that was redeveloped because of HemisFair '68.
