Shackleton hut I

The historic Antarctic huts are a little like land-borne Marie-Celeste's. There's not quite half eaten meals on the tables, but there is very much a sense of people having just popped out for some reason and the expectation of their imminent return.

There are lots of stores around still, some of them seem vaery familiar, while others really do seem like they are out of another century.
