Sponsored by: San Francisco Maritime National Park Association
The 1901 shipwreck of the Pacific Mail Steamship Company’s SS City of Rio de Janeiro was the deadliest ever at the Golden Gate. Maritime archaeologist and historian James Delgado will share the story of the Rio, including its rumored “treasure” that never existed, and the discovery and rediscovery of the mud-shrouded hulk hundreds of feet deep. He will also share the stories of two less-known but tragic wrecks; SS City of Chester, and the USS Conestoga, which were also the focus of underwater archaeological discovery and surveys. Join us for a night of drama, tragedy, heroism and an undersea tour of these three ships in our local waters.
