Description
Sacramento (built 1877; paddle ferry) logbooks are deck logs and provide the times, number of vehicles, tides, weather, explanation of delays, restaurant and newstand inspections and signatures of the captain and the engineer in charge on the vessel's crossings between San Francisco and the Oakland pier. The volumes are dated as follows: January 2 to July 1 1929, January 1 to June 29 1930, July 1 to December 31 1934 and July 23 1940 to March 21 1942. The logs were originally bound at the top margin but have been dismantled to protect the paper. Each volume occupies two folders. The collection is available for research use without restriction.
