As the prison expanded, each new cell block held more prisoners that the original ones. Over the years, Eastern has fallen into disrepair. Tourists support restoration efforts with the admission fee. Despite the negative effect it had on prisoners, it is an important piece of American history and a landmark to what detention facilities should not be.

This looks just like a pic I took of Kilmainham Gaol in Dublin. That too was in B&W, seemed appropriate.

Nice image.
