Candy fron the 1960's, mmmmm Yummy...

Remember the food found in the remote Antarctic field camp from the early 1970's buried under 10 feet of snow? If not look here (http://peterflaig.blogspot.com/2011/02/1960s-breakfast-seriously-we-ate-food.html). They also found Candy!! For me one of the coolest things about this photo is that Dr. David Elliot (upper right in this image) was actually at the buried camp in the early 1970's. He remembered eating both the breakfast food and the candy when he was at that camp. :)

CTAM Camp out the Helo Window, Just Before Landing...

The tents in the foreground include the Mech Tent, Communications, two Science Jamesways, and the triple-long Galley tent. In the Background are three sleeper Jamesways for the Pilots, the Wash Tent (Shower), and our Tent City. Dry goods are stored in the boxes on stilts to the right of the image and the white door barely visible on the right leads underground to the frozen food locker dug into the glacier.
