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.
