Items on the metal tables, including plastic cups, paper napkins, salt and pepper shakers, a individual-sized paperboard milk container, and a television set, seem to indicate that the area is a small recreation area where prisoners eat and watch television. Some disposable cups are also placed in the openings between the cell bars.
