I've added the Sutro Tunnel and grounds photos that were taken on a family visit. Sutro Tunnel is a Comstock Lode icon, even though it really never made financial sense, except for the people who earned money from selling investments in it. But, that's the story of the Comstock: More money, some say, was made in San Francisco selling stock in Comstock mines and projects than in mining silver and gold.
