Louisiana State Penitentiary

Cotton Picking Farm Line 16 1998Warden's House

Above is a mounted guard and a prisoner picking cotton in 1998 (some guards have rifles). Below, the warden’s house in the same period. This is at Angola, the flagship prison, located on the former Angola Plantation.

These images are not mine, nor is the one of the electric chair a post or two ago, and I can give the source if readers are interested.

Axé.
