Last prisoners to leave Alcatraz in 1963

Abandoned tower on old Route 25, north of Bowling Green, OH. This was built to house water tank for livestock & people. Brick walls 18" thick helped to keep the water from freezing. The 1st floor had a boiler heated with natural gas piped from a well on the farm. There was a bathroom on the 2nd floor and an additional water tank on the 3rd floor, which caught runoff from the roof when it rained. There are many of these in NW Ohio. Often the rest of the farm is long gone but the towers remain.

On Sep 13, 1944, a princess from India lay dead at Dachau concentration camp. She had been tortured by the Nazis, then shot in the head. Her name was Noor Inayat Khan. The Germans knew her only as Nora Baker, a British spy who had gone into occupied France using the code name Madeline. She carried her transmitter from safe house to safe house with the Gestapo trailing her, providing communications for her Resistance unit.

I'd love to re-learn how to write shorthand. :-) It's would be a way to send almost-secret messages, since no one can read it nowadays. Texting got nothing on shorthand!
