We went to see this famous prison when the cold wind was howling down these cell corridors!

It was famous for the "isolation" programme it imposed on it's inmates until many, including Charles Dickens, protested and claimed many of the inmates were going insane.

Thanks to you all for your really interesting comments on my Orthodox Jewish men. Incidentally they were watching ice-skaters on the artificial rink - maybe wishing........?

Modern visitors get an EXIT sign, it's so obviously out of place, on various levels.
A place that I would love to photograph.

I'm sure you could spend days photographing there.
If I ever went to Philadelphia again it's a place I'd like to see.
