this shot was taken from the back corner of the hole. We were actually closed in hear and it get's reeealllly dark! Prisoners would typically get 5 days in a row under these conditions with the worst getting 21 days (the birdman).
they won't close the actual bars because the system is so old and a few years back tourists actually got locked into some of the cells and they were stuck in there until they could get someone from the bay to rescue them.
