From the archives of The Daily News for Feb. 22:
In 1914, the skeleton of a female was found while a crew was excavating for a building foundation at the corner of Broadway and 26th Street in Galveston.
In 1964, the fire marshal released the results of an investigation into the Bandstand Tavern and rooming house fire that resulted in the death of C.W. Brinkley, 45. Fire Marshal John P. Heffernan said people in the building reported seeing sacks of trash in the hallway where the fire started, and the probable cause was a match or cigarette inadvertently flipped into the trash.
In 1989, the head of Galveston’s narcotics and vice squad said a multi-state prostitution ring cracked by Houston vice agents appeared to have no workers in the Galveston area.
