Prison 19H

The prison world... A resolutely world apart, and a negative microcosm of society.
Few positive things have taken place here, and for good reason. Those who do not deserve to be "free" (or rather "not locked") were crammed into these small cells for sometimes many years. I don't pity them.
About staff which ensured the security of the institution, we don't find any trace. Anyway, nobody care about prison guards...

Very well preserved, it presents the classical plan of prisons built in the 19th or early 20th century.
Totally surrounded in the city, Prison19H offers today a quiet haven in the polluted and noisy city.

Prison 19H

Four sections of 40 cells.

Prison 19H

Left, kitchens and workshops. In the background, the cells. On the right, the chapel.

Prison 19H

The large chapel.
Premises located on the ground floor couldn't be visited.

Prison 19H

A watchtower.

Prison 19H

Obviously, the staff here were armed. Hence the presence of hatches on the walls of watchtower.

Prison 19H

Buttons and indicator lights. It feels almost like a spaceship.

Prison 19H

No ?

Prison 19H

A long mysterious tunnel.

Prison 19H

The prison medical center.
To avoid risky transfer of the prisoners to hospitals, large prisons are generally equipped with such a center.

There we find a radiograph, an operating room and several medical offices.

Prison 19H

Back to the historical part.
Here we are in a time warp : doors and wooden walkways, cells originally not provided with sanitary, tiny windows.

In the center and at each level, great and almost modern rooms. No idea on their usefulness.

Stairs straight.
Woe to him who misses a step !

One of the many totally free services offered to the nice imprisoned, victims of this society who does not understand them.

We'll try to get out...

Prison 19H

Not here anyway !
See you next time.
