This gabled window was located on an old galvanized roof discolored by years of sea gull waste. The roof for that window was host to a lone sea gull that morning.

Inside the prison was a two story cell block with tall rows of windows facing it. Notice the humps of bars that allowed the windows to open inward.

Sometime after the prison was shut down, the barred windows were removed from this building. That allowed wild flowers to invade its interior.
