Eastern State Prison Friday 06-11-2010

On a beautiul day we went to Philadelphia, Pa to view the Eastern State Prison. It was the first of its kind in the world, built in 1829 and lasted until the early part of the 20th Century. Everyone there had 23 hours a day there of solitary confinement and they were not allowed to talk.

The pictures above were all taken riight out of the camera (CanonT2i) The blue sky and did NOT have a polorizing lens and I particularly like the configuration of the skylights  in the hall. The fixed up room was AL CAPONE’S room. Notice how ROUGH he had it  compared to the other men who just had a cot style bed and a commode, sometimes with 2 men in a room.

We had other opportunities to go, but didn’t think it had much to offer, however, it turned it turned out to be a very educational and enjoyable day. We are glad we went.
