Texas Death Chamber

Huntsville Unit, Texas. 1997.

The execution table where all condemned receive a lethal injection. The slanted mirrored glass to the left is where the executioner observes the killing. Tubes that carry sodium thiopental, pancuronium bromide, and potassium chloride are fed through the small square opening in the wall. Relatives of the condemned and of the condemned victims observe through the windows to the right, separated by a thin wall.
