Delta and river views:  1820s to 1930s

What did the Delta look like in 1850, when California first became a state?
 
What was the natural environment of the Sacramento River Delta area and the San Joaquin River Delta area?  Sketches from maps and books of the time period, and written descriptions from the surveys for the railroad route to California help give a realistic picture of what was, and was
not, the reality of the environment from 1823 to 1930s, before the major aquaducts were built to divert Northern California water to the south.
