Eastern State Penitentiary, located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, opened in 1829 to international acclaim. Architect John Haviland designed this landmark experiment in architecture and building technology to embody Quaker ideals about institutional reform, civic responsibility, and criminal behavior. The Penitentiary was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1965; it closed in 1971, and was abandoned for over twenty years. The Penitentiary has found renewed life as a historic site and educational facility under the management of the newly created Eastern State Penitentiary Historic Site, Inc. Hope Abandoned features photographs and quotes taken long after the last door was locked and sealed. According to Perrott, his images of the decrepit and decayed prison depict the "awful beauty of this mostly dark and profoundly disturbing place."

This is mostly a picture book, but it is very nicely put together with evocative photos of the various scenes in the prison to capture both the architecture, purpose, and "culture" of prison life there through the ages.

This is just a picture book taken by an urban explorer. I thought there would be more history and story within, but there wasn't. Probably only 10-12 pages of actual text. The pictures are beautiful, but I guess I was expecting something different. Teach me to read descriptions of books before I buy them!
