What is Jail Island, Alcatraz? -6

I ended my last post showing you the picture left in last post. This is the windows inmates can look out. What they could see was the picture right below. It is not just through this window, but prisoners could have full view of San Francisco city. It was also said that in festive time, Independence Day, Christmas, etc..., prisoners could watch city dressed up with illuminations, fireworks, and could even hear people partying, singing, dancing, enjoying...

It would have been unendurable torture for prisoners who could feel, sense, watch, hear the people free enjoying themselves in special occasions. They must have wanted to close their eyes, cover their ears. But they could still feel what is happening on the other side of the Bay. How horrible. What kind of malicious torture human beings could do to the other human beings even they are criminals.

The last picture below left shows windows which were used for the visitors to talk with prisoners.

Hi Shaw .. I agree with you .. being able to hear and see the partying across the water - must have been very difficult for the inmates.

Prison is not a nice place ..

All the best

Dear Hilary,

I do not know if someone intended this way or happened to be like that. But, it must have been tough to see what they could not enjoy any more.

Thank you for your comment.
