These barracks were the old Angel Island Immigration Station. The Chinese Exclusionary Act of 1882, revised several times, led to the construction of this Immigration Station. It was allegedly built to keep Chinese from coming into the U.S. to stay. This immigration station was active from 1910-1940 and has recently been restored.

These two open windows were part of the old quarters of Ft. McDowell East Garrison. This shot was taken in the year just before restoration was begun.

This window was in the barracks section of Ft. Point in San Francisco and just under the Golden Gate Bridge. It had steel shutters that were close to form a firing shield, but the opening was now bricked over.

One of the windows in the fort had been covered with plastic. Barely visible outside was San Francisco Bay.
