Essex County Jail

Happy Friday once again, and this is the final Friday for November. Up today is a photo of the Essex County Jail, dated December 6, 1933, although I suspect the photo is older than this, and dates back to the jail’s 1925 opening. This photo was taken along Peter Street and looks north.

A current view from the same spot reveals… too many trees, to get an exact comparison 🙂

The jail was built in 1925, and designed by the firm of Sheppard & Masson. I assume, despite not hearing anything for a while, that plans are underway to still replace it?

Anyone know the status of that project?

Have a good weekend, see you back here Monday.
