One of the few ways to get between Alameda and Oakland, not particularly pretty but very practical and well-used.

This was a tunnel from Alameda Island to Oakland. It was nothing special but still somewhat interesting.

I was a resident of Alameda, until very recently and, drove to Oakland, very often by way of the Posey Tube. I always felt a special feeling for the Posey Tube and find it easy to say, it is one more landmark, for Alamed to...More
