The Uncharred Part of Angel Island

The immigration station on Angel Island— the one that at one time held immigrants from two weeks to up to two years— has completed the first phase of a $65 million restoration, and will officially reopen to the public in February after three years in hiding. The structure was luckily spared by the recent fire, which means you too can now admire the wall poetry scrawled by despairing prisoners. [SF Examiner]
