A artists ‘loft’-not! Picture of a cell (with a missing toilet), at the penitentiary on Alcatraz Island in San Francisco Bay that housed many notorious prisoners, most notably, Al Capone. Many prisoners attempted jail break, almost all unsuccessful! .
A great tour that includes a cruise to the island. .
“Alcatraz Island offers a close-up look at the site of the first lighthouse and US built fort on the West Coast, the infamous federal penitentiary long off-limits to the public, and the history making 18 month occupation by Indians of All Tribes. Rich in history, there is also a natural side to the Rock—gardens, tide pools, bird colonies, and bay views beyond compare.”.
