Christened on May 20, 1927, the Delta King and its sister ship, the Delta Queen transported passengers from San Francisco to Sacramento. Both ships were built in Glasgow, Scotland, as well as Stockton, California. The Delta King and Delta Queen were luxurious ships that took passengers on a 10 ½ cruise that included jazz bands, prohibition era drinking, fine dining, and gambling. The completion of the Golden Gate Bridge in 1937 effectively retired the Delta King and Queen, whereby 1940 both ships went out of business. This circa 1940 River Lines Streamer Map shows the three decks (Texas, Observation, & Saloon) of staterooms, restaurant, and saloon. It advertises the departure and arrival times from which the Delta King and Queen cruised from San Francisco to Sacramento.
