Water cans for cell's wash-stand and closet are seen on the wall. Water tubes, sewerage, end electric light were invented in this prison in 1904 only. Paraffin oil lamp were used before that date. One day prisoner-women burned herself with oil from that lamp and lamps were changed to candles. The candle should be light all the night. Suicide was a pretty common deal between these walls.
