Day 316 – Luxury Stay
“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.”

Amazing room ~ great post ~ carol,xxx
Oh my! His “prison cell” looks more cozy than my first apartment 🙂
yes, does look ritzy for a jail of its era. lousy looking if it were a restaurant.
Looks so cool!!!
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.
Interesting. Must have brought his own furniture.
amazing and very interesting i’m planing to visit it soon.
Wild!!! LOVE the photo! You are so good. 🙂
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?!
Ha! That made me chuckle
Fascinating! Not your typical jail cell. Love all the color 🙂
Wow that is luxury for a cell! Nice shot.
