Description, including signature and date
This gallon jug contains a model of the Maryland State Penitentiary in downtown Baltimore, a building which dates to the 1850's. The bottle probably dates from the 1930's or 1940's. Inside the compound of buildings is a baseball diamond. Guards with rifles walk along the tops of the walls. A tall smokestack has black cotton smoke, and the building is detailed with gold paint.
