Steeped in history and possessed of a pleasant winter climate, San Antonio has long been one of Texas’ top tourist destinations. As early as the 1890s, San Antonio was a destination for travelers across the United States, and its popularity continued throughout the 20th century as the heritage industry grew. The Rare Books Collection includes numerous guidebooks and souvenir books from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. A selection of these often heavily-illustrated works is featured in UTSA Libraries Digital Collections.
