If you enjoyed the first installation of Gates of Berkeley, you will appreciate part 2. If this is your first introduction to Gates of Berkeley, view the original post.
The first and the last example are Gates with a capital "G".
Les, indeed. The first gate has a twin on the opposite sidewalk; "entrances" to a 1906 Berkeley subdivision, Claremont Court (see http://www.berkeleyheritage.com/berkeley_landmarks/2005_landmarks.html).
Gotta love a town that is all about variety and originality! The Magnus Museum is one of the hidden gems of the Bay Area. I discovered it by accident while visiting the site of my great-aunt's former home in the Claremont neighborhood. What a beautiful part of town. Thanks for the nifty tour!
