  Yuma Prison cell
by mht_in_la

This prison cell is kept the way it was as a century ago. Each cell housed 6 inmates, and they were all chained together through the ring on the floor, as seen in photo. The cell is only 6 feet wide from wall to wall, and the weather gets well over 110 degrees in the summer. The bucket on the floor was their only sanitary facility. Must be "loads of fun" when they need to go.
