Have you ever wondered how Al Capone lived while in prison? I never would have pictured this. This photograph is Capone’s cell at Eastern State Penitentiary as it exists today, so it must have been even nicer when he was there. Located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, this penitentiary was emphasizing principles of reform rather than punishment.
