ARTIFACT: This is a rare circa 1930s Marine Corps Guard sweetheart sewing pillow from the United States Naval Prison at Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Placed upon the site of a Revolutionary War era post named Fort Sullivan, the Naval Prison is an imposing island-based structure modeled after Alcatraz. It was used from 1908 until 1974, and now stands in disrepair. The pillow is fringed and done in pink on one side with a large "China Marine" emblem and a "Sweetheart" poem and done in blue on the other side. It has a flap pocket in which to stow sewing notions.
