Wordless Wednesday- Guess Where #1 Answered

Eastern State Penitentiary, Philly

A Typical Cell

The Haunted Corridor’s

Where trees grow on roof’s




  1. Do you know when they stopped detaining prisioners here? I know it’s meant to be punishment but that place looks harsh.

    • Built in 1822-1836 on a radical plan by John Haviland. Linking solitude with moral and vocational instruction, it exemplified Pennsylvania System of penology and became a model for over 300 prisons worldwide. Closed in 1972.

      Wow that’s crazy!

  2. Awesome post! And good idea for when there are no words!

  3. Your dad was such a romantic. When I read the first letter, it reminded me of a song from the movie, “That Thing You do”. You can get a quick version at (its called Love You Lots and Lots..) I hope you’re still enjoying this project – its wonderful!

    • Thank you! I never knew dad was a romantic! so it is all new to The project is hard to get started on but once I am reading and writing about the letters I do find it interesting. Especially when he is talking about what he is going through. Loved the song and it seems I have read those same words in Dad’s Letters, lol
