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.
