With so much information on the Web about Alcatraz, I feel little need to write about my recent visit to this historical prison. But given my latest articles on prison food, I can not pass up posting some of the pictures I took of the kitchen.
Prisoner meals were governed by “Alcatraz Regulation #33: DINING ROOM RULES”:
Meals are served three times a day in the dining room. Do not exceed the ration. Do not waste food.
Working in the kitchen was one of the best jobs a prisoner could have (although I would certainly be nervous if they had easy access to the knives).
