Dailies – with Love from Pookaverse

All the pics we wanted to show you that couldn’t be included in the blog. We’ll tell you where….but we don’t exactly know when?…….why?…..how?….or what?

Note: All images, including those incorporated into the blog,  can be expanded to a web-friendly 1280 x 960 resolution simply by clicking on them.

A view from ‘The Hole’ with the light on and the door open. From the audio presentation. One prisoner commented on his experiences after being committed to this place for 90 days. He would keep himself ‘sane’ by removing a button from his uniform, flipping it up and letting it drop. Then search for it in the total darkness. Once found, the game would start all over again…

An exhibit recreated within one of the original prison cells holding either Frank Morris, John Anglin or Clarence Anglin and the tools that were used. (Apologies: the exhibit is protected by plexiglass so it was difficult to photograph)
