A vision of the end of the world as found in an abandoned whaling station.

In 1917 Stromness was the whaling station that Sir Ernest Shackleton managed to reach after floating for 2 years on the ice flows of Antarctica – following the crushing and sinking of his ship. In 2005 Stromness was one of the ghost towns that littered the coast of the now uninhabited Island of South Georgia.
