Many of the cells in the Cornwall jail are just wide enough for the bunk....a thin mattress on a wooden platform. There was no space on either side of that, and only enough room to stand between the end of it and the cell bars.
The exercise yard isn't very big either. And though the prisoners had access to the open air, they were also still totally walled in and had no place to see the outside world. I'm pretty sure that courtyard could get pretty hot during the summer, with more heat radiating off those stone walls.
If a prisoner had a visitor, the prisoner was locked in this little cage and used the phone to talk to the person on the other side of the wall.
A paranormal group did some research there, and there are photos posted on the wall of some of the phenomena they spotted. Orbs seems to be fairly frequent, and when I was looking over some photos I took, there, without doubt was one of those orbs. I'm fascinated, and will be doing some research on the subject. Some people say they are caused by reflections off the dust motes in the air. If that were the case, I'd expect to see them in many more in the pictures I took, rather than just the one. Others say the appearance of spirit orbs in a photograph may indicate a spiritual being attempting to communicate with the photographer.
The one I captured was near the floor, in a deserted corridor. If you click on the picture you should be able to see a larger version of it, which might help you see what I've circled there.
Let me zoom in on that a bit.
I'm not sure why I pointed the camera in that direction. Something told me too, and I'm certainly glad I listened. Maybe something was communicating with me after all.
