Tell me more about a
trip to Antarctica!
Packing Case - Scott's Hut
Even 100 years ago product placement was important
for a sponsor. There were many companies that sponsored
Captain Scott's and other Antarctic expeditions. They would
make their names and trademarks very obvious, partly to
make it easy to identify the contents, but also so that
photographs could be taken and used for advertising purposes
The amount and variety of stores required
for a year or more (in case the ship didn't make it on time)
is quite mind boggling, more so that 100 years ago there
were vital things that we just don't use at all today.
