Thry look a little big for CD cases. I think that they are Laser discs.

I think they are CDs. It just took 75-80 years after the invention of the CD itself to design smaller packaging :)

when you are in madeira have a look at the vincentes museum in Funchal. He started in 1848 and his studio is still intact.
Darkroom enlarger Light was a candle. Backgrounds used for portraits, his 8x10 enlarger. All still there....

How is it that a 100 year old darkroom still looks cleaner than my own? :rolleyes:

Maybe because you don't have ice-bears lurking around your house waiting to kill and eat you... alllowing you to go out shooting, instead of finishing the boring task of cleaning up the mess in your darkroom :p

Are there any in Antarctica?

Hehehe, yes, well, probably not, because it should be "polar bear" in proper English instead of the badly translated ice-bear I wrote about... ;) And no, they aren't in the southern Arctic:

The article is misleading the Terra Nova hut is at Cape Evans and is on solid ground. I was there in 2005 and it just needs to be dug out after the winter storms. It is a truly remarkable sight with notes written in pencil on the bunks from the various expeditions that used it. Including "Shakelton?" left by his support crew as they waited the ill fated Endurance Expedition.

what a fun read! I read about this place a long time ago and wanted to visit. I read a bit about nobody takes anything. Or so the story goes. But, if you look at the two photos of the bedroom area, notice that there are a LOT of things missing! hmmmmmmmmmm....

My brother has actually been to Scott's base camp. I have a few pictures he gave me showing some of the huts and foodstuff etc left behind that are very similar to those in the link.
He was down there with the company he worked for as they were bidding on a contract for logistics for the near by American base.

I had no idea there was a darkroom there as well, makes sense I guess.
