Eastern State Penitentiary 

Photographs by Shaun O'Boyle

The Eastern State Penitentiary is located in Philadelphia PA. The Penitentiary, built in the 1820's-30's,  is a National Historic Landmark now open to the public and is run by a non profit group who offer guided and unguided tours of the old prison. It is a unique place and I highly recommend a visit if you are in the Philadelphia area. For more details about the penitentiary, hours of operation, history and other related info  see the links at the end of this photo essay.
