Old Jamesville Penitentiary, Jamesville NY

A view of the Onondaga County (Jamesville) Penitentiary (date unknown), a building I vividly remember in it's much more deteriorated state. Built from 1899-1901, the building served until 1983. It was eventually torn down in 1999 after being replaced with a new facility. Thanks to my brother Dan for sending the photo.
