Serving the Christmas Meal
Darlyne Sheppard Alcatraz Photo Collection
An inmate worker distributes trays near the steam table. Bars separate the kitchen from the mess hall.
The day’s menu, the Christmas meal, appears on a sign over his head. The menu includes consomme, stuffed celery, green olives and mixed sweet pickles, roast Tom turkey with giblet gravy and cranbury sauce, candied sweet potatoes and raisin nut dressing, French peas and whipped potatoes, and hot apple pie and icecream for dessert.
