California Steam Navigation Company -- December 29, 2020


Placer Herald, 19-April-1862

The California Steam Navigation Company controlled most transportation on the San Francisco and San Joaquin Rivers. Chrysopolis was a legendary sidewheel steamboat that carried passengers between San Francisco and Sacramento from 1860 to 1875. She was then converted to the Oakland, a double-ended ferryboat which crossed San Francisco Bay until she was destroyed by a fire in 1940.
