This is a wonderful treasury of rare photographs that really takes the reader inside the mysterious world of Sing Sing. I only found two faults with the book. One is that I would have liked to have seen a few more "modern" photos, from the period of 1930 to 1960.
The second was a glaring error involving a photo that did not belong in this book. Page 94 shows a photo of the infamous "thrill killers" Nathan Leopold and Richard Loeb arriving at prison in 1924. The caption says, "Leopold was sentenced to 99 years in Sing Sing." But the prison shown in the photo is Joliet Penitentiary in Illinois, not Sing Sing. In Neither Leopold nor Loeb had any connection to Sing Sing. They committed their crime in their hometown, Chicago, where they were also tried and convicted. They served their entire prison time in Illinois, first at Joliet and then at Statesville (Loeb was killed in a prison fight at Statesville in 1936, and Loeb was finally paroled from that prison in 1958).
