1936 Posey Tube

The Posey Tube (named for Alameda County surveyor George Posey) opened in 1928, and provided the first non-bridge connection between Oakland and Alameda. This footage is from 8 years later in 1936, so it’s not clear that it’s for a particular event, and it’s a bit blurry and shaky. Regardless, as an Oakland historian it’s still kind of fun to see.
