Stockton Whiz Kids, Wooden Boats

The year was 1902 in Stockton, California. While trains carried people and goods from San Francisco Bay to Delta communities, boats were a primary means of transportation on the Delta. 

The channel in downtown Stockton was an attractive place for two young brothers to hang out and dream of a future.
