Old Presidencia/Signs

A sign spotted at one of the streets in Culion Island, a former leper colony (est. 1904).
I'm glad this old prison was empty and padlocked.

It reads:  

Old Presidencia
One of the old prisons of 
the colony where errant 
patients were put into jail.

Linking to Signs, Signs

that's ironic, they're already sort of "jailed" because of their conditions.

happy easter.

I'm glad those times are gone!

How sad about the patients. =(

it does seem strange that even imprisoned in a leper colony is not enough, that you could still be further imprisoned.

sorry about the confusion with the linky, but it is now up and I have linked you.

Yes. Some old things are best gone!

It's sad, nice capture though.
