Al Capone cell in eastern State pen

“I am like any other man. All I do is supply a demand.” ~ Al Capone

*This is Al Capone’s cell in the Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia. “Chicago’s most famous mob boss spent eight months at Eastern State in 1929-1930. Arrested for carrying a concealed, deadly weapon, this was Capone’s first prison sentence. His time in Eastern State was spent in relative luxury. His cell on the Park Avenue Block had fine furniture, oriental rugs, and a cabinet radio.”

    A skylight and everything!
    The thing that really struck me is that I have that floor lamp in my living room. I bought it at a yard sale without a shade and then went out and bought a shade that looks just like that! Wonder if I should examine my taste?!

    Well, his prison cell definitely changed its look when he got to Alcatraz. This is the first time I have seen his cell in Philadelphia. The man did get around.
