      Experience Alcatraz like you’ve never seen it before with Alcatraz the Last Day.

      From 1934 to 1963, US Penitentiary Alcatraz was a maximum-security federal prison, home to some of the United States’ most notorious criminals. Situated prominently in the center of San Francisco Bay and shrouded in secrecy, the mysterious island prison captivated the American public’s attention. When the penitentiary’s closure was announced in early 1963, news agencies from around the world lined up to cover the event. On March 21, 1963, the editors of Life magazine sent an accomplished California-based photographer named Leigh Wiener to shoot the island’s closure.

      In this captivating volume, over one hundred black-and-white photographs documenting Alcatraz’s final hours as a federal prison have been reproduced from Leigh Wiener’s private collection. These never-before-published prints not only provide an intimate view of the island and its residents, but also document Wiener’s consummate skill as an artist.

Alcatraz: A History of the Penitentiary Years

Alcatraz. The name alone says it all. It was meant to send a shudder down the spines of America’s most incorrigible criminals. It stripped Al Capone of his power. It tamed “Machine Gun” Kelly into a model of decorum. It took away birds from the Birdman of Alcatraz. For the men confined within its walls, US Penitentiary Alcatraz (1934-1963) was truly the end of the line. In this massive volume, historian Michael Esslinger takes his readers on a fascinating journey into the world of America’s most famous high-security federal prison. Drawing together hundreds of photographs, inmate records, letters, telegrams, and other historical documents, Esslinger goes far beyond Hollywood myths surrounding the Rock and penetrates some of the island’s innermost secrets. In the world of USP Alcatraz, sometimes truth was stranger than fiction…
