Photographer's Note

The Empress Hornblower excursion boat will be transporting Old Sacramento Gold Rush Festival visitors along the Sacramento River this weekend. The Sacramento River was the primary transportation from San Francisco to Sacramento for the 49ers.

In the background is the Tower Bridge, a vertical lift draw bridge, the first in the California Highway System. It is a rare use of "Streamline Moderne" architectural style in a bridge, and it was opened on December 15, 1935. The towers are 160 feet high (49 meters).
