I took this picture in the basement of Edgar Allen Poe's house in Philadelphia.
He lived in this home for 18 months..
It very ironicly seems to be the location that inspired Black Cat...
" The cat followed me down the steep stairs, and, nearly throwing me headlong, exasperated me to madness. "
"For a purpose such as this the cellar was well adapted. Its walls were loosely constructed, and had lately been plastered throughout with a rough plaster, which the dampness of the atmosphere had prevented from hardening. Moreover, in one of the walls was a projection, caused by a false chimney, or fireplace, that had been filled up, and made to resemble the rest of the cellar. I made no doubt that I could readily displace the at this point, insert the corpse, and wall the whole up as before, so that no eye could detect anything suspicious."
