Tunnel, on the Sausalito side of the Golden
Gate Bridge, helps promote the sensation that when you leave the City
you leave the other side of the rainbow. The tunnel is named for William
Waldo, a big Whig who ran for Governor of California in 1853. He lost and
went on to establish the town of Waldo, Oregon. The original tunnel was
built in 1937, with the second bore added in 1954.
