An 1870 plan of the prison shows the various wards and the exercise grounds. The central hexagonal building in the middle is labelled offices and was later known as the Regency Roundhouse. Constructed in 1819, the building would serve as the Prison Governor's house at some point and most recently has been refurbished as The Clink restaurant. Along the top of the diagram are two buildings, one labelled Stores and one labelled Infirmary.
The same buildings can be seen in an oblique view of the prison from the opposite angle (i.e. looking south). From this perspective, the Infirmary, where Josef was held is the building in the lower left foreground of the picture.

Today, the prison looks very different from the Victorian images.

The Governor's house is still visible and from there, one can identify the old Infirmary building as well as the Main Gate. Many of the original wards have been rebuilt or removed.
Unfortunately, no medical records from Josef's time at Brixton Prison Infirmary are contained within Josef's Security Service files (KV 2/24, 2/25, 2/26, 2/27).
