The railroad came to Seaford in 1856 and in 1859 the railroad bridge seen here was completed to allow passage to Salisbury and later all the way down the Eastern Shore. The steamboat in the background pulling out from the steamboat wharf, located at the bottom of Arcadia Street,appears to be the Tangier which was one of about a dozen Chesapeake Bay steamers that plied the Nanticoke River from the early 1850's to the late 1920's. The Steamboat Era on the Nanticoke had passed.

This picture is shown of the Steamboat near the Baltimore Cheaspeake and Atlantic Railroad wharf just East of the Railroad bridge. The earlier wharfs were closer to the Market street bridge East of here that crossed over into Blades. The Bc&A went bankrupt in 1927 and what boats left were shut down soon after,
