Solano Tunnel

The Solano Tunnel (also called the Northbrae Tunnel) is a former electric railroad passageway opened in 1912 and later converted for street use.  Cathy and I sketched at the lower (tunnel) level at the interesting intersection of El Dorado Ave, Hopkins St., Henry-turning-into-Sutter St., Del Norte St., and the pedestrian path, Terrace Walk.  Jana and Cristina sketched at the upper (fountain) level at Marin Circle.  An enthusiastic neighbor emerged from her home just as we were leaving to exclaim over our drawings of her neighborhood.

The ivy drips down like icicles over the tunnel
