Posey Tube Postcard View

Courtesy photo     Historic postcard courtesy of Alamedainfo.com shows the Posey Tube with the Oakland skyline behind it.

The West Alameda Business Association’s new logo’s prime focus is the Posey Tube superstructure built in 1928. The building was captured in the Oakland Chamber of Commerce photograph at left taken from the Alameda side of the estuary. The Oakland skyline appears prominently in the background, but the subject matter is decidedly Alameda. The image dates to some time in the late 1920s. Notice that when it opened, the Posey Tube offered just one lane of traffic in each direction.
