'forms part of the police station ... There is only one cell. It is 9 feet long, 5 feet wide, and 7 1/2 feet high, and contains about 340 cubic feet. The cell is tolerably secure, but damp, and there is no provision for warming it. It is lighted and ventilated by a grate in the door only ... The cell is provided with a guard bed, but this bed is so high, that a prisoner might be hurt falling from it. There is no bedding.'
