Industrial Campaign of 1929-30

(48.26 cm HIGH x 31.75 cm WIDE)
Gift of Mr. Jim E. Adams

Third advertisement poster from the Industrial Promotional Campaign of 1929-1930 for Alameda County. The catch phrase for the poster is "Driving Cars Under Ocean Liners." The ad states that the Port of Oakland is such an active place that Alameda County built a "subway" going under the Estuary to connect Alameda to Oakland (the Posey Tube). The completion of the "Estuary Subway" proves again that Alameda County is a forward thinking place, that merges the needs of industry with those of citizens. A drawing of the Posey Tube appears on the top of the poster. The donor's father was the graphic designer for the posters, E. Adams.
