Old Building at Whalers Bay

Deception Island is an active volcano on South Shetland Island near the Antarctic Peninsula.  The island has a protected harbor and was used extensively by early whalers.  In 1906, Norway started the site in Antarctica as a port for ships for processing whales for oil.  In 1912, a Norwegian company established the Hektor whaling station onshore.

The British also had a presence on the island base until 1969, when the base and many other buildings were damaged by mud and ash floes resulting from a volcanic eruption.  The abandoned wooden building no lies in ruin.  The roof is collapsing, and the wooden planks litter the landscape.
