fun fact: one cell in every block at the Eastern State Penitentiary was turned into a barber shop, and the inmate barbers were so good that the guards even brought their family members in for cheap, good haircuts. Visiting Eastern State was one of the most interesting and enlightening things i've done in a while, so i'm going to post a few pictures i took with facts, enjoy!

The cheesesteaks weren't that good

The penitentiary façade is quite a view against the Philly skyline! Here, they are viewed from the central guard tower through an opening which once held a clock.

Eastern State Penitentiary is the oldest penitentiary in the U.S. Located in Philadelphia and open year round for tours. Get a history lesson, see Al Capone's cell, and hear about our philosophy on criminals as it compares to other countries.

Something about the bright sun shining through the doors spoke to me about hope being everywhere, if only you know where to look.

this was Al Capone's cell for the year he was sentenced to in ESP. he liked to listen to waltzes. the luxurious state of the cell speaks to what celebrity status can achieve, since some inmates dreamed day and night for a cell like this. Capone also got his tonsils out in Block 3, the ESP hospital block (such a good hospital that other prisons often sent their inmates there for physical and psychiatric treatment). It is also rumored that he underwent an adult circumcision there, because it was thought to be a cure for syphilis. the crowds that gathered for his release were so large that Capone had to be secretly moved to an alternate prison and released there. i'm probably done posting for tonight, but you can hmu for more fun prison facts because i'm officially obsessed with the history of ESP.
