Inside Cape Evans Hut - 9 - Scott's 1911 Terra Nova Expedition
McMurdo Station - Antarctica

Just like today - corporate sponsorship was a big thing in the Heroic Age of Antarctic exploration. Suppliers of foodstuffs and other supplies would expect suitable publicity including pictures of their wares being unloaded and used in Antarctica, hence boxes were very clearly and "loudly" labelled for such photo opportunities.

Storage boxes were built into internal walls to separate living, working and sleeping areas and to afford some privacy to men who had taken to their bunks - the only personal space they had in the hut which housed 25.
