Delta King Riverboat
Sacramento River Near Intersection of Front and K Streets
Christened 20 May 1927

For a decade beginning in 1927, the sternwheel riverboat Delta King and her identical twin, the Delta Queen, made grand, ten-hour journeys between Sacramento and San Francisco complete with fine dining and jazz and gambling.

Prohibition whiskey and gin and champagne.

$3.50 would get you a stateroom. For eight bits you could sleep on the cargo deck if you brought your own blanket.

Those were the days, my friend.

The bottom photograph was taken from the eastbound California Zephyr as it crossed the I Street Bridge just before stopping at the historic Southern Pacific Depot.
