The Parole and Intake Offices (sometimes called by their historic name, “Bertillion”) were added to Eastern State Penitentiary’s complex of buildings in 1944. They included records rooms, showers, photography rooms and a dark room. The spaces had been in serious disrepair by the time the tour program began in 1994, and served as the temporary dressing rooms for Terror Behind the Walls for many years. The historic site has retrofitted them as staff offices, leaving as many details of the original architecture as possible (including bullet holes in some of the windows). Tour the offices, and see photographs and artifacts related to this historic, evocative place.
