Long Description:
"The scene selected for this mural is the Napa River circa 1900. The view is from the Third Street Bridge looking south. The two artists, Steve Della Maggiora of Napa and Susan Clifford of St. Helena, have used a realistic style with true colors and hues with a warm summer sky casting glistening shadows onto the river. The colorful history of Napa is exemplified with the many wharfs, mills, wineries, schooners and steamships. It is important to note that no 19th century structure directly related to Napa's maritime commerce still exists.

The schooner "Emma", piloted by Captain George Pinkham, and the sternwheeler "Zinfandel", piloted by Captain N.H. Wulff, are both depicted in the mural. Their original homes still stand and have been designated City Landmarks by the Cultural Heritage Commission." (visit link)
