Al Capone's Cell In Eastern State Penitentiary

Al Capone was arrested in Philadelphia on a gun charge before he was incarcerated for tax-evasion. For 9 months he called this cell in Eastern State Penitentiary home.


The warden and guards at ESP gave special consideration to Mr. Capone during his stay, permitting him to hang artwork, tables and lamps, a velvet duvet, comfortable chair and an expensive radio... Capone enjoyed listening to waltzes after dinner.
