Sirs,
Seeing some of the ideas sent to you for a monument on Alcatraz one day on television I came upon a idea I thought would look good on Alcatraz.
I know that there are many architects who may have better ideas then this. But I thought I would just show you what I think would be a big tourist attraction for San Francisco.
I call it the (Torch of Peace) on the top could be anything from just a lookout to a restaurant. Going up to the top is a elevator in the center.
I know you have your hands full trying to decide what to put on Alcatraz and I might just be giving you another headache.
But having been born in San Francisco although I am not living here at the time I am proud of the city. I have seen many cities in the United States and think San Francisco is the most beautiful in the country. So I think the monument on the bay should be the same.
Sincerely
Dan Oliveri
