Default Perhaps more on steamboats and insects

The attached photo show passengers having dinner outside on the boiler deck guard of the GOLDEN EAGLE. Built as the WM. GARIG a cotton packet, the "GOLDIE" had a very narrow cabin. But its not dinning on the guard that interests me in this picture, look to the right along the overhead, see those light bulbs......they look black! In b/w photos many times red comes out black, so I'm thinking they lit the guard at night with red lights to keep from attracting bugs. Also red light does not demenish night vision.
This picture was probably taken in the 30's, when did yellow bug lights come into use??????
