9781331914273: Plans and Illustrations of Prisons and Reformatories (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Plans and Illustrations of Prisons and Reformatories

The cell houses are circular, resembling a gas tank with a conical roof. They are a practical execution of the Panopticon proposed by Jeremy Bentham in the year 1787, a plan of which will be found in Punishment and Reformation, by Dr. Frederick Howard Wines, page 144. The interior wall of each cell is of glass and a central tower enables the guard to keep every prisoner under Observation every moment, day and night. Each cell is well lighted by an exterior window. An elaborate system of ventilation was installed, but on a recent visit the writer discovered that the cell houses ventilate themselves through the outer windows and the sky light, and the fans were not in use. It is doubtful whether a system of perpetual espionage will find favor with prison administrators, but the experi ment is an interesting one.

Special efforts were made to obtain the plans of the new Illinois Penitentiary for this publication, but were unsuccessful.
