Abandoned Pier

Today, there is a rocky beach with algae growing abundantly. Yesterday, there was Potrero Point, a large Western Pacific pier that reached into the San Francisco Bay serving rail ferries to Alameda. Only a single rusty rail remains as evidence of what was, and what is no more. Photo by Andrew Laverdiere, December 2008.

Was this where the prison trains to alcatraz left on the ferries?
