This funny souvenir t-shirt is to commemorate a trip to Alcatraz Island in the San Francisco Bay. Alcatraz was used as a penitentiary from 1934 to 1963 and had a reputation for being impossible to escape. Though the island was not used as a prison for long, the legacy of the penitentiary has had a lasting impact. Alcatraz Island is a popular tourist destination and welcomes 1.5 million visitors a year. They take a ferry from Fisherman's Wharf and enjoy a tour of the well preserved remains of the mid century prison. This tee references the fact that the only way to escape Alcatraz would be to swim. Annually, the city hosts a triathlon called Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon, which includes the mile and a half swim from the island to the shore.

Fits like a modern unisex adult small.
