Ok - I gotta admit the tin cups are kind of fun - but have you noticed how lately, at every GGNRA, City sponsored, place like Alcatraz it seems they are busier selling stuff than caring about visitors - The new store at the GGBridge really fried my butt.
Hilarious, A little different from a tshirt.
La Principessa Errante: The last time I was at GGB the store wasn't opened yet. These gifts were at the Alcatraz gift shop and I thought they were pretty tacky. Yogi: I don't remember seeing t-shirts there, but I'm sure there were some. I wonder if they were striped?
These are used at Alcatraz before..
These souvenirs would look quite confusing to any former residents of Alcatraz...
A very unique souvenir to receive, especially the cups!
I have never seen so many of these eraser before. Like garage sale lol
I like the tin cups but would not buy it in case someone thinks I escape from Alcaltraz. lol
Weird.. But to Tell ya truth, no doubt I would buy something if I was there..lol
and, did you buy something?Greetings,Filip
Chamber pots or tea/soup/coffee mugs?Eraser, yeah if only it were that easy.
hmmm, i am not sure if i would buy any, though they seem to be symbolic, but somehow i can't just imagine using them or having them at home.
rainfield61: No, these are new, I hope.catsynth: Aside from the harmonica and eraser, I wonder if these were standard issues without the nice packaging.llandudnopictures: I like the cup too, but not sure if I would ever use it besides using it to rattle the prison bars. :)James Wei: These were expensive garage sale just for tourists.EastCoastLife: Haha, that is funny!caite: This was just a small sample. They even sold rocks from the crumbled buildings.Filip and Kristel: No, I did not buy anything this time, but I bought a cellhouse key the first time I was there. Sukhmandir Kaur: Haha! Just don't get mixed up. betchai: Some things are interesting like the history books about the island, but the rest of the stuff, I don't know...
Love those tin mugs! Beautiful captures.Wish you a wonderful week :)
$4.95 for a bar of jail soap is a crime!
do they have shot glasses or fridge magnets?
I wonder if the inmates' cups were similar to these tin cups here.
Um, wow. That's quite a souvenir shop.
Arti: Tin cups were used instead of ceramic ones to avoid them from being broken and turned into a weapon.Annemarie Pipa: Haha, unlike the actual inmate soaps, this one is made with organic olive oil, saponified coconut and palm kernel oils.LifeRamblings: I am sure they did. There was just too many things in the store. de engineur: These replica cups are made of stainless steel and seem unbreakable.Rachel Cotterill: And so much more. You can even buy stuff online: http://store.parksconservancy.org/store/productlist.asp?cat=1&sub=1
What cute souvenirs! I especially like the salt and pepper shakers and the soap!
Lot of choice there.
