CUMMINS UNIT a/k/a CUMMINS STATE FARM

Arkansas prison, “The Farm”.  Maybe not as well known as the Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola, but a place to stay far away from if possible. Shown here is the water wagon used for the prisoners out in the fields (April 18, 1957).  See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cummins_Unit for a full explanation of the goings on at Cummins.
