GAS CHAMBER

The last photo in this increasingly depressing series from the Old Missouri State Penitentiary. Most of us with daily photo blogs like to post pictures that are, in one way or another, attractive. However, there is some value in showing the darker side of our communities.

The view here is through a thick window into the chamber. There is a heavy sealable door to the left of the frame. Note that there are two chairs. There was an occasion when they were used simultaneously. I decided not to describe how the process works.    

The complete album of these pictures, including several not published on this blog, is at https://www.flickr.com/photos/bobcrowe/albums/72177720303299422. All of this made me feel that I should have a second post today that was, well, more pleasant.
