A Block Cell
1977 Karl R. Josker

A Block Cell

This is a typical cell- B & D Blocks were similar, all of the interior cell design, that is, no cell wall was on an exterior block wall. C Block is of an exterior cell design, that's to say, one cell wall is the wall of the block, with its' own window to the outside. D Block was the most severely damaged in the '71 riot, and in its' reconstruction, two cells were made from every three.

other sizes: small medium original

how depressing to have to spend even a few days in here never mind years! maybe young offenders should have to stay in a cell like this for a couple of months as a deterant from offending again. i know it wouldn't work for everyone but it would work for some.
