Alcatraz Control Center

Alcatraz Control Center The Control Center in Alcatraz. This room is visible to all visitors to the prison and is beautifully preserved. I couldn’t find anything specific about this room but Alcatraz History has a very good site with lots of information about the prison on Alcatraz Island.

A view on an Alcatraz Street Looking through a doorway onto one of the streets of Alcatraz Prison in San Francisco. Tourists congregate while listening to the electronic tour guide. I think I should have all my photos of Alcatraz and San Francisco posted before my next trip there in July.

Alcatraz Tower and Prison

Alcatraz Tower and Prison The prison tower and buildings of Alcatraz provide a stark welcome for visitors to the former penitentiary. Despite my close investigation, the tower in this picture was off limits. Pity, because I bet there’d be a great view from up there!
