History of San Francisco Bay Ferries to Alcatraz?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : San Francisco History : One Thread


I'm hoping someone out there can help me out...I'm looking for the history of the San Francisco bay ferries.

Specifically, I want to know when (what year?) the first ferry existed that would transport people from Alcatraz Island (before it was a prison?..and then after it was a prison?)

Any supporting information would be helpful.

thank you! If you know of any websites that cover this, that would be helpful too!
