"La Isla de las Alcatraces" The island of Pelicans that eventually became the famous Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary (as known as The Rock!) was on the top of my list during a San Francisco visit 👮♂️ There any many reasons to see the rock, but I wasn't really expecting a spectacular city view from the prison 🌁 It was initially a military reservation and transferred to the DoJ around 1930s and used as a prison (for really bad guys) until its closure on March 21, 1963 ⌛Then it was occupied by native americans who claimed the rock as an indian land to start a cultural center. They were supported by the general public, hippies, celebrities until they lost the control. In June 1971 they were removed by marshals 💂♂️ You can still see some of the writings from that time on the water tower and on the walls. Alcatraz famous inmates include Al Capone, George 'Machine-Gun' Kelly, Robert Stroud 'The Birdman' and Arthur 'Doc' Baker. Inmates will take at least another post, so stay tuned. I definitely recommend you to see The Rock! 😎 #tbt#cityscape#spectacular#amazing#city#view#sanfrancisco#travel#california#usa#alcapone#birdman#alcatraz#prison#therock#sf#military#base#indian#occupation#inmates#federal#penitentiary#cruise
The hours each day to capture the glance of the cold water separates not only me from you, but my pain from pleasure; my distance to the void.
Every portal is art. Every crack is a canvas painted with the masterpiece of tomorrow never to become today. #sanfrancisco#alcatraz#window
Awful picture but sharing for comedy value. This is me, #broken headed to #Alcatraz having blacked out several hours earlier and been escorted back to my hotel by a #stripper - we had been offer $1k for each our tickets (no exaggeration) by a Russian but refused as this was our last day. I was #thrilled on every level as you can imagine. “And we absolutely have to take a boat?” #sanfrancisco
Dummy Heads From The Prison Escape At Alcatraz.
While serving time on the Rock, Frank Lee Morris, Allen West and brothers John and Clarence Anglin began plotting their escape. They slowly worked their way through the concrete walls of their cells to a nearby chute.
Late on the evening of June 11, or early in the morning of June 12, 1962, three of the four men made a break for it. West was unable to leave his cell in time, staying behind as the other three prisoners escaped. All that remained were dummy heads they had made from cotton sheets, soap, paint, and human hair.
Even though the FBI declared the men dead from drowning in 1979, they remained on America’s most wanted list and the U.S. Marshals case remains open.
