Alcatraz Ceased To Be A Prison This Day 54-Years Ago; March 21, 1963.
I like the beauty of Alcatraz — but then again I never had to serve time on it.
Did the full tour of the Island in 2005. That was neat. I wish I can find the pictures from that trip.
Got to see it from multiple vantage points on our trip to California last year. What a beautiful island.
So the prison was closed 54-years ago, after 28.5 years in service.
