The creepiness and coolness and enormous scale of this former prison is captured in this photograph. In the far distance is a pair of figures. Look closely. The cellblocks all point toward a central hub where guards could watch all hallways at once. Pair this with all of my Eastern State Penitentiary photographs! Your photograph is signed and dated, on glossy paper, with a white border.

"Opened in 1829 as part of a controversial movement to change the behavior of inmates through "confinement in solitude with labor," Eastern State Penitentiary quickly became one of the most expensive and most copied buildings in the young United States. It is estimated that more than 300 prisons worldwide are based on the Penitentiary's wagon-wheel, or "radial" floor plan.

Some of America's most notorious criminals were held in the Penitentiary's vaulted, sky-lit cells, including bank robber Willie Sutton and Al Capone. After 142 years of consecutive use, Eastern State Penitentiary was completely abandoned in 1971, and now stands, a lost world of crumbling cellblocks and empty guard towers."
