Rose Prison Photos
To date I've been able to locate 3 photos of Rose in The Old Capitol
Prison, all taken by the photographer Matthew Brady.
2 of the photos are from the same negative, but are each slightly
different in what they expose..
The first is a tif image and is VERY large, so in the interest of
conserving space I will not post it here. Instead I'll post a
lower resolution jpg image
2nd is the Brady photo we see posted everywhere of Rose and Little Rose.
Compare these 2 images and you can see the differences.
In the original photo we can see the boarded up windows and the
blankets hanging out to dry.
Perhaps this image was too crude for the general populace, so a cropped
version was made and widely distributed. Photo 2.
The 3rd photo is from another negative. This image was found on Rose's
body when she drowned at Cape Fear.
