“Alcatraz” translates as “The Island of the Pelicans” also known as “The Rock”. Alcatraz was the site of the first lighthouse on the west coast completed 1854. Subsequently it became a military fortification, a military prison (1868), and a famous federal prison from 1933 until 1963. Today it is open for tours as part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area.

My collection of fun, whimsical souvenir plaques called Bingo Boards expand on the original vision of mixing playful art and function. This light green plaque pictures Alcatraz,  the California State Tartan as background and a copper hook for hanging keys, dog leash, etc..
