February 8 in San Antonio history...

Today’s edition of the San Antonio Express newspaper (right) features a photograph pasted to the front page of each copy.  The photograph, called a homeograph, is a reproduction of a line drawing entitled “Answer of the Germans to the Above”, referencing the article above the photo.  Both the line drawing and the homeograph are creations of Carl G. Von Iwonski of San Antonio.  This is arguably the first photograph to appear in a newspaper anywhere.
