Sustaining the city in the bayThroughout the military and penitentiary years, Alcatraz was much like a small town. Keeping the town going—and the convicts under control—depended on the uninterupted service of the power plant to your left and the warehouse straight ahead. Because of the vital nature of these facilities, they were strictly off-limits to prisoners, unlike some operations on the island that relied on inmate labor.
