Stone walls don't make a prison.

The Prison for Women was closed in 2000 after 66 years of notoriety. Queens University now owns the property and tore down 3 of the 4 security walls. The top photo is the Correctional Services museum housed in the former warden's residence. These shots were taken on several passes by.

  2. It was actually Canada's worst shit hole, Lerm. It was the only place for female prisoners, no matter how serious the crime or how long the sentence.
