In a prison cell in Philadelphia

Room 7

The discussion about prisons continued for all the 19th century, when detention became the architrave of the modern penal system.

The room is dominated by a large model of Philadelphia prison, which represented one of the principle points of reference for 19th century prisons. In front there are four models of period cells.
