New Plymouth Prison Open Day.

New Plymouth Prison is closing this month. It will have been in operation for over 140 years, and is one of New Zealand's oldest prisons.

Today they held an open day for the public. There are no longer any prisoners there. Most of them have been shifted to Whanganui Prison. Several of us went to have a look, but none of us did any sketching. On the table in the dome, there were copies of sketches we did last time for the public to take if they wanted.

Here is the sketch I did that was on the table:

It was quite surreal watching people look at them and then pick up your sketch.

Here is a picture I took:

I may try and sketch from it later.
