GUEST,Beachcomber BS: Who knows what Sacramento was like back (27) BS: Who knows what Sacramento was like back 14 Mar 13


I am still seeking information about Sacramento in the 1920s. Does anyone have any history , in particular of the docks, of that city from those times. Are there any books that can be referenced or any websites, that are known to Mudcatters ? I will greatly appreciate any info that anyone can give.
I am trying to get a flavour of what the city was like when my Dad worked there on the "lighters" (or whatever they were) in 1925-7. I have often wondered if Sailing ships were able to reach that far up river ?
