Barry Goodman in darkroom
Base H - Signy Island Antarctica

  ©Copyright A.D. Bailey - picture taken 1963

As photography was such a popular hobby, the darkroom was often in use. Initially for developing and printing black and white, then with E6 kits to develop colour slides on base and then with Cibachrome to make colour prints. There was a significant amount of paper and chemicals provided by BAS for all but the most demanding of base members.

I don't know if Antarctic bases have darkrooms any more, maybe older bases have one left over from wet-printing days, most if not all photography is digital now.

This picture is one of a collection assembled in 2007 on the 60th anniversary of Signy Island Base: 60°43'S 045°36'W. Thank you to those who sent their treasured memories of their time in Antarctica and allowed them to be made into a commemorative cd and then placed here on the web.

The reunion weekend was 14-16 September 2007.
