Al Capone’s Cell

Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania once held the infamous gangster Al Capone. While I wouldn’t want to spend a day in jail, Al Capone’s cell looks like it was pretty cozy. At least I could catch up on some reading.

Eastern State Penitentiary

Right in the heart of Philadelphia, Eastern State Penitentiary was an active prison from 1829-1971. Now it is a museum, and a really interesting place to visit.

This tree was so vibrant that I just tilted my camera skyward and took a few shots. The color came through well so I thought I’d give it its own post. This is in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
