Corrugated Prison Roof

Visitors to Alcatraz Island walk about on the broad path up to the main prison building.

Some of the buildings on the island are in a bad state of repair, lacking everything but the brick walls that stand like a whitewashed skeletons. This building is about halfway up the hill and in much better condition.

One reply on “Corrugated Prison Roof”

This cemetary of buildings, hold secrets from past prison mates, and the chilling sight of these bare and empty walls reminds me of the emptiness of tortured souls trapped in imprisonment.
