Alcatraz

Alcatraz

Alcatraz ist eine Felseninsel in der San Francisco Bay. Dort befand sich von 1934-1963  das berühmt berüchtige Hochsicherheitsgefängnis. Unter anderem war hier Al Capone inhaftiert. Das Gefängnis galt aufgrund des eiskalten Wassers in der Bucht und der gefährlichen Strömungen als absolut ausbruchsicher. Trotzdem gab es 19 Fluchtversuche, die allerdings alle scheiterten.

Die nachfolgenden Fotos haben wir von Patrice Ouellet erhalten. Vielen Dank dafür, Patrice!

Excelsior, Minnesota

 

Excelsior

Excelsior/ Minnesota liegt an der Küste des Lake Minnetonka. Der Ort wurde 1850 gegründet als Erholungsort für die Bevölkerung der Städte Minneapolis und St. Paul. Excelsior hat nur 2500 Einwohner und hat hart daran gearbeitet seinen Charme zu erhalten. Auch heute ist es während der Sommermonate ein beliebtes Ausflug- und Urlaubsziel.

Al Whitaker, der in Excelsior lebt, hat uns diese Fotos zur Verfügung gestellt, die den Charme des Ortes wiedergeben. Sie zeigen Gebäude und Geschäfte entlang der Hauptstraße Water Street.

 

Thanks to you, Al Withaker!
