Philadelphia, PA – Eastern State Penitentiary – Capone’s Cell (HDR)

Here is the luxurious cell for Al Capone.  Capone spent most of his prison life at Alcatraz, but did spend 8 months at the Eastern State Penitentiary.   From 1929-1930.  I asked the tour guide this day why he had the only comfortable cell?  She replied that is  unknown, but just as he arrived an anonymous donator gave some big funds to the prison.  They had new baseball uniforms and a cell Martha Stewart would be happy to have!  LOL  My last post form here for a while.    The next shot will be “locked up” for a a month or so!
