dc.descriptionThis photograph appears to be near Antioch in the San Joaquin River of California in 1925. From left to right are: unidentified schooner, Pactolus, James Rolph ex Celtic Monarch, B. P. Cheney, and Hecla. I do not know anything about the steamers. Antioch was a useful layup for old ships inasmuch as it was fresh water, yet close to San Francisco Bay. Pactolus became part of the California Shipping Co., fleet in 1899 and then a salmon packer chartered to several companies. Pactolus was laid up in 1924. James Rolph, ex Celtic Monarch was an iron ship of 2073 tons built by Thomas Royden & Sons, and was scrapped in 1934. It was also laid up in 1924. B. P. Cheney, built at Bath in 1874, was a 1322 ton wooden ship, later bark, that in the 1920s was owned by Naknek Packing, another salmon packing firm. Hecla, from 1877, was also built at Bath by Goss & Sawyer. Hecla made eight voyages to San Francisco and five to the Orient before being purchased by San Francisco owners for the lumber and coal trade—later the salmon trade. Later Hecla was also sold to the ship breakers in 1928.
