Rob P: That sounds reasonable. The bricks in the back/inside wall are the same size as the bricks on the front. If this was a wall further back in the cell, the bricks would appear larger. I looked up "standing cell", and this looks like one.

......I guess at least you're somewhat out of the rain, wind, and snow...and possibly a bit more secure than sleeping on an actual sidewalk or bench.......maybe??
Autoguy, I agree. I personally know someone (a normal, college- educated, working, nice-home-owning person) whose mother is intentionally "homeless". She plays the sympathy card to "earn" money panhandling (and I'm sure has other "work" of various kinds...???), but actually chooses to "live" this way. She has a "home" she has set up, and it's really odd to see, but she absolutely refuses any help. My friend occasionally cooks meals and brings them to her. To my knowledge, she is not mentally ill (though in my way of thinking, anyone who would WANT to live like this has to be at least a *little*off. Who knows.
That is CREEPY!! (to think of walking on that). You couldn't see any major cracks or holes or missing pieces in the glass under all the debris on top. I didn't know the catwalks were GLASS. I would have assumed in a building this old they would have been some kind of woven metal mesh, etc, if letting in light was the issue. Sounds like quite "state of the art" architecture for this long ago. Would love to know how they made those pieces back then. Learn something every day :-),
Really like this. Strange space. Doesn't seem like the wall was original, tho, unless they bricked up a cell from the other side to remodel...hmm. I could die of curiosity not to know what was behind that.
Me, too. I can't stand those "subway tiles" people seem to love so much in home decorating these days. The actually LOOK like a subway. Sorry, but I don't want my kitchen to look like a grungy train platform under the city (OR my bathroom to look like a public rest stop. EEWW). JMO.
Hi to those who've been on here a while :-). Haven't been on in a LONG time, but had been around for enough years for the words "soap dispenser" to make me smile....lol. Just farting around online today and thought, hmmm, guess I'll check that site again. Still got some great stuff. Thanks for the new galleries, MOTTS. :-).
LOVE THAT! That belongs in my backyard :-)
Good. I'm not the only one with a strange imagination...:-0...:-).
Oh, what a balcony to have my morning coffee on :-)
Looks like a tombstone.
No Smoking :-)
Beam me up.
