Pacific Coastal Steamers: 1886
Travel between Victoria and San Francisco was surprisingly common back in the 1880's, and mostly by coastal steamer. In Big Ledge, I have Baillie-Grohman make such a trip, where he combines business with an opportunity to finally catch Lily Langtry on stage.
The Queen of the Pacific made regular trips between Victoria and San Francisco and also up to Alaska and back.
