Recreated Al Capone cell inaccurate — and teen notices
PHILADELPHIA — A sharp-eyed boy who noticed that the vintage radio inside gangster Al Capone’s recreated Philadelphia prison cell wasn’t historically accurate has delivered a replacement.
Thirteen-year-old Joey Warchal — who collects antique radios — took a tour of Eastern State Penitentiary and noticed that the radio in Capone’s cell was wrong.
The Prohibition-era mobster spent time at Eastern State in 1929 and 1930. The radio was made in 1942.
The seventh-grader found a Philco Lowboy 64 from 1929 online for $300.
CBS Philadelphia reports the radios were swapped. The teen was given the 1940s radio as a token of appreciation by Eastern State. The replacement is pictured below, in the video.[…]
