How does it get better...

...My mom's father was, in life, the warden of the Harrisburg PA state penitentiary. It was a rather old facility (1860's, I think?), so there were a lot of things done with it that aren't done now. The warden and his family, noteably, were housed inside the jail. This jail is not there anymore- they tore it down not too long after he passed away, when my mom and aunts and grandmom moved to the midwest.
But I found a panorama photo of Harrisburg in 1909 on ebay, and showed her a couple of shots out of it asking if the jail was visible. Why yes! Yes it was! Where'd you find that image?
Heh heh heh.
Heeeeeere mothersdaymothersdaymothersday.
