Built in 1870 by inmate labor, this state prison in Deer Lodge was closed in the late 1970's, and is now a museum. Inmates hand-fashioned 1.2 million bricks for the facility.

Walter,

The look and feel are unmistakably those of a prison.

Thanks for sharing.

I like the color and the contrast.

The sign makes me think that after what happened in Tacoma this maybe the "look" of the new schools.

Now there's a depressing thought. My company does community needs assessments and we poll school principals (among others)about their concerns. We've conducted more than 450 studies nationwide and nearly all school principals tell us that student behavior (and attitudes) has worsened over the past 3 years. About forty percent of principals told us that fewer than half of their students receive any guidance (or help with homework) from their parents.

Excellent shot. I like the contrast between the color of the building and the fence. There also seems to be a different style of architecture between the fence and the building. It is almost as if two different architects were involved.
