Chinese shacks tended to be built along the Sacramento River, Steamboat Slough and othe areas.

From Rio Vista or "Newtown" over to Ryer Island-this may be the "Ashley Ferry" shown on local maps

Since the steamboats left San Francisco port around 4 PM, they reached the Delta after nightfall, and only the passengers willing to stay up would see the beautiful silvery mood on Delta waters!

Looks like the port of Stockton
