Wandsworth Prison, London: view down two of the radiating wings across the central rotunda

Hill, David R.
NOTES: It was built on the "Panopticon" design to enable the "separate system" to be used for 700 prisoners in individual cells, each with toilet facilities. The main part of the prison, having 4 wings radiating from the centre, was for male prisoners with a smaller separate building for females: two further wings were added in 1856.
