4 of us went to Mansfield on May 26th 2007 - Mike, Mickey, Chris and I, and then a rather large group of others we didn't know.. We were first broken up into tour groups after a very entertaining talk given by one of the tour guides. A draw was had and prizes were given. It was amusing.
This is a shot of the Administration building on the right, and behind it the central area above which are the chapel and the tuberculosis hospital (on the top floor). Mansfield had the county tuberculosis patients staying in that top floor. The size is not very big, I have no idea of their success rate.
This is a shot of the east block, it's a newer part of the prison. The cells are smaller and the inside looks a lot bigger than the outside. You can really get a feel for how hard the architect worked designing this building.
This is a corner of the east cell block. The work is magnificent and the building really does come across as a castle.
More tomorrow, I am falling asleep.
