Eastern State Penitentiary ESP

A place of remarkable urban decay, haunting light and textures, and perhaps a ghost or two. Located in the Fairmount section of Philadelphia this prison was operational from 1829 until 1971. Today it’s U.S. National Historic Landmark, open to the public as a museum for tours seven days a week, twelve months a year 10 am to 5 pm.

No Escape

No Escape

Deep in this prison there is a feeling no escape. Cruel walls of stone and steel still hold some part of those who were held here.

Tortured

Tortured

These old prison cells retain a feeling of dread and a sense of the tortured souls that occupied them not so long ago.
