Father Christmas Opens Gaol – 1930

The gates of Alabama’s prisons in Vancouver, were opened for more than 3OO convicts, who went home for Christmas. Parole for 15 days was given to men, most of whom were convicted for murder or manslaughter, who have already served 25 years and who so conduct is meritorious. This is the third year that long term convicts have been rewarded, and only five have failed to return. No check will be kept on their movements until January 5.
