The Condemned Cell in Newgate, c1872. Creator: Unknown

The Condemned Cell in Newgate, c1872. Cell for prisoners condemned to death, in Newgate Prison in London. In the upper part of each cell is a window, double grated, near 3 feet by 1½. The doors are 4 inches thick. The strong stone wall is lined all round each cell with planks, studded with broad-headed nails. In each cell is a barrack bedstead. I was told by those who attended them that criminals who had affected an air of boldness during their trial, and appeared quite unconcerned at the pronouncing sentence upon them, were struck with horror, and shed tears, when brought to these darksome, solitary abodes. Newgate was demolished in 1904. From Old and New London, Vol. II: A Narrative of Its History, Its People, and Its Places, by Walter Thornbury.

Alfred Dreyfus in Prison, 1895 Featured Print

Alfred Dreyfus in Prison, 1895

Alfred Dreyfus in Prison, 1895. Dreyfus (c1859-1935) was a French army officer of Jewish extraction wrongly accused of handing secret documents to a German agent. He was court-martialled and disgraced, and sentenced to life imprisonment on Devil's Island as a traitor. Although the legal proceedings were irregular, the verdict was widely approved of in French society and the press, where anti-Semitism was rife. The case, which became known as l'Affaire Dreyfus continued to divide France, with the author Emile Zola writing a famous open letter accusing the army of a cover-up. Eventually, in 1906, Dreyfus received a full pardon from the President of France, and he went on to serve with distinction in the French army in the First World War..
