Old Jail in Newark

After reading about the tour of Newark’s old jail, I donned my new resort attire (white blouse with flowers – $4 on clearance, (somehow) matching tangerine clam diggers – $1 on clearance, tangerine flip flops – $1 where everything costs $1) and motored up Route 37.

The safe.

After walking through the sheriff’s living quarters, we visited the cell blocks while learning about an eighteen year old innocent lynching victim.

The shower/discipline room.

Down into the jail’s bowels to the dungeon, complete with holding cell/drunk tank.

This was the only gargoyle? character? I could find on the building, although according to a postcard there are several.

A local author (you know her well) wrote a book detailing all she learned in her years of animal rescue.  If you are interested, here is the link:   confessionsofananimalrescuer.webs.com/.   All proceeds (and that means 100% of the profits) go to pay for veterinary care for homeless and unwanted dogs and cats.
