Jailhouse Rock

San Francisco Bay

hardly an attractive place, Alcatraz is nevertheless a famous one..orginally a fort, then a military prison, for three decades dating from the 1930s it served as a federal penitentiary...the jail cells were located in the building at the top of the small, rocky island

Your picture has made it look very attractive - but I love rust and peeling paint and abandoned stuff in general. Very nice view of it too, David. ~BV~
