Pathos and Squalor Week

September 1, 2016 § Leave a comment

Having moved to a different cell block where I spend my weekdays, my eyes  now confront the unrelenting grey boredom of W, instead of enjoying the variedness of Tin Cup Alley. That’s the price paid for a one-bunk cell.

I made a rare visit back to 1210A3, or whatever its number is, to look at Tin Cup Alley and mark the murder of Laura Lensing in 1869 by one of her customers du jour. The murder scene is a parking lot now, but Tin Cup Alley stinks almost as much today as it did in the summer of 1869.

So I am observing Pathos and Squalor Week in Austin in the memory of girls like Laura and their inevitably miserable lives. One photo a day, not from Guy Town, but one dive is like another. You can also check @xekeus for other odds and ends.
