An old bench shows a history of abuse by time, weather and pigeons as it sits in the courtyard at Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The prison was built in 1829 and closed in 1971 remaining abandoned for several decades before being re-opened to the public as a history museum. A great place to spend a full day of photography.
