Welcome to spring.
This is a first for me. I tried taking black and white photos while I toured the Eastern State Prison in Philadelphia.
From my other blog. Eastern state penitentiary.
These photos are mostly of the eastern cell block of the Mansfield State Prison. It is immense. It housed 1,200 inmates and is six stories tall.
I was lucky enough to tour Mansfield State Prison last week. There are two distinct areas. One area is the living quarters for the warden, his family and his staff. The photos in this blog are primarily of that area. The second area is where the prisoners lived. I’ll include those pictures in a later and different blog entry. One of my favorite views in the prison is an area where four rooms align and light spills from each doorway to form an X on the floor. It isn’t a great picture but it is an interesting feature of the facility. A picture of the X is included in this post.
Also, Shawshank Redemption was filmed in this facility.
