Captain Scott's Bunk
It's as if Robert Falcon Scott is likely to come
back any day and continue where he left off. A
reindeer skin sleeping bag sits on the bunk with a pile
of blankets at the pillow end. A finnesko boot sits on a
shelf, with socks hung up and the chair and desk where he
would sit and write his diary prior to the fateful South
The bottom picture is an original picture
of Scott at this desk taken in 1911, the middle is a composite
of the two.
