Alcatraz Closing -- 50 Years -- March 21, 2013

50 years ago today, 21-March-1963, the Federal prison on Alcatraz Island closed.  The last 27 inmates boarded the launch for a ride to the pier near Fort Mason.  My mother went to school with children of the guards. 

I took the photo on 15-October-2011.
