Location of Public Executions 1905greenspun.com : LUSENET : San Francisco History : One Thread
Sorry to focus on the macabre, but I am working on a historical mystery novel set in SF in June, 1905.
I understand that public executions were performed by hanging in 1905, but I cannot find out where they were conducted. Any ideas anyone?
Thanks in advance. Tara Munier Allison email@example.com

The sources I have looked through all indicate that executions, by hanging, were done up at San Quentin prison.
