|A nifty little publication printed on thick boards that gives the book a certain heft. One side juxtaposes photographs of assorted inmates with images highlighting what was happening outside in the larger culture throughout Alcatraz's history. The other side presents a written history of Alcatraz (1934-1963) accompanied by photographs that show prisoners engaged in a variety of activities all of which were associated with a number of different prison rules.|
This is a thoughtful publication that provides a good introduction to the rich history of the nation's first maximum-security prison.
30 pages, double-sided, 6" x 4", fully extended 10'.
