Part of the Laundry Building with an ugly archway between rooms. Note that even this building had a nurse’s station with shatterproof windows. Laundry was done by supervised patients as part of their Occupational Therapy and the staff took no chances.

A gateway for St. Louis as seen through a gateway (of sorts) in East St. Louis.
