Where Was This Picture Taken?
Was this picture actually taken in Sacramento, or on a boat known as "The Sacramento?" If the former, was it the Delta King, or its sister ship, the Delta Queen? Hmmm...another research project.
My grandmother passed away in 2004 so, my first step will be to ask my Aunt Coralee who is 89 years old. Hopefully, she will remember this photo.
The backside of this photo reads: "GENUINE KRYSTAL GLOSS - GUARANTEED FOREVER - BEAR PHOTO SERVICE -OCT. 27 1938"
I Googled "Bear Photo Service" and found the following links:
Palo Alto Historical Association - Photograph Collection
Scott's Photographica Collection
WorldCat: Bear Photo Service
