My wife and I were in Philadelphia PA over the weekend and was surprised to see the amount of history this city has. We took the Big Bus Tour which brought us all around the city and showed us both the old and new areas.
We visited the Eastern Pen as it’s known and it is the oldest penitentiary in the United States. Hundreds of prisons have been modeled off the Eastern Pen system. We walked through the Pen’s years of history from its beginning to when it was closed in 1971. Technology speaking this prison was way ahead of its time. They had running water in the prison before the White House did.
Technologically speaking, Phili was way ahead of its time and this has been proven all around the city. I know that this blog is a bit off topic but I had to share with the community.
