Alcatraz

I’ve always had a bit of a fascination with Al Capone, and the legend that surrounds him… like how when he was told to keep a ‘low profile’ during his final trial, he responded by wearing a different neon colour tailored suit to court each day.

That trial eventually saw him carted off to Alcatraz. During the trip out to Automattic’s HQ in January, we got the chance to go out and see the rock itself. It’s somewhere that I’d never really placed the location of in my mind, so it was amazing to see it in person. It’s crazy when you realise just how close it is to the City of San Francisco, and how that view… so close… must have driven both prisoners and guards alike demented.
