Photo c. 1880 shows glimpse of prison wall to left of warden's ivy-covered residence. The darker stone marks prison's added upper tiers.

A zoom-in close-up detail from 1889 photo, looking down on the prison, focuses on the industrial shops section to the right of the long cellblock building featured in the image at this web page's top. Note castle-like wall watch tower spires (far right). The background is not sky; it's the river reflecting the sky.
