Dumbarton Prison - two original cell windows
See the main item: NS3975 : Remains of Dumbarton Prison.

As described in that item, two of the prison's original cell windows have been preserved; like the other remains of the prison, they have been incorporated into the modern boundary wall of the nearby court building (a small portion of which is visible behind the wall).
Dumbarton Prison
A Geograph article Link discusses the prison in detail. It was built from 182426, enlarged in 1863, and closed in 1883. It then held county records until 1965. During the realignment of Glasgow Road in 1973, the prison was almost entirely demolished. An entrance portico survives in place; some cell windows and a Royal Cipher have also been preserved, and are now incorporated in the modern (1973) boundary wall.
