Default What Happened To Sidewheelers?

Yesterday as I was working on the Howard Photo collection it occured to me that sometime during the mid-1890's the construction of sidewheel boats all but stopped. With the exception of the CINCINNATI and the ISLAND QUEEN in the early 20's, I can think of no sidewheel packet boats built during the 20th century, yet sternwheel packets continued to be built into the 1920's. What changed? Why, do you suppose, sidewheelers fell out of favor?
