1934 · Alcatraz Island Becomes Federal Penitentiary

Age 15

Alcatraz Island officially became Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary on August 11, 1934. The island is situated in the middle of frigid water and strong currents of the San Francisco Bay, which deemed it virtually inescapable. Alcatraz became known as the toughest prison in America and was seen as a “last resort prison.” Therefore, Alcatraz housed some of America’s most notorious prisoners such as Al Capone and Robert Franklin Stroud. Due to the exorbitant cost of running the prison, and the deterioration of the buildings due to salt spray, Alcatraz Island closed as a penitentiary on March 21, 1963. 
1940 · Galloping Gertie

Age 21

Galloping Gertie is the reference used to describe the Tacoma Narrows Bridge. It opened on July 1, 1940 four months later it no longer existed. On November 7, 1940 the wind guests came up to 40 miles an hour causing the bridge to twist and vibrate violently before it collapsed into Puget Sound. The only victim of the bridge collapsing was a three-legged paralyzed dog named Tubby whose owner tried to rescue him from the car but he wouldn’t go with him.
