Left Behind

Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Wendy Todd-Caldwell

This was taken at Eastern State Prison in Philadelphia. It was closed in the 1970's and just left as is. Now the purpose of the owners is to preserve what's there, not to restore. Some cells have large vines growing through the walls, others still have bed frames and toilets left behind.

Location: Eastern State Prison, Philadelpia, PA
