Jun 22, 2023 | Crime, Videos

Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary was a maximum security penitentiary located on the isolated island of Alcatraz in San Francisco Bay, California. It was one of the most notorious prisons in America, housing some of the most dangerous criminals including Al Capone, Machine Gun Kelly and Robert Stroud, the Birdman of Alcatraz.

For almost three decades from 1934 to 1963, Alcatraz operated as an isolated prison with its solid walls and isolation from any nearby landmass providing a secure environment for its inmates. The prison staff were well trained and efficient in maintaining a strict code of conduct for all prisoners ensuring that attempts to escape were virtually impossible. The conditions at the prison were harsh and even viewed as cruel by many. Along with physical labor such as gardening and painting, prisoners also had to endure disciplinary measures such as solitary confinement and bread-and-water diets which were implemented whenever they violated rules or regulations.

The stories and experiences of those who lived within its walls has captured public imagination over the years and continue to fascinate people today.
