The Folding Sink in the Head

Here is a photo of the folding sink in the down position. The spigot of the waterpump swivels up to allow the sink to be folded up out of the way. When folded up for storage, water in the sink drains into the casting mounted on the bulkhead, and drains via a hose and copper pipe into the toilet bowl. (Note, these are not installed when this photo was taken.) The clip on the bulkhead holds the sink in the stowed position.

Shackleton's near-fatal journey to the Antarctic has received a lot of press in recent years. This is Shackleton's own account—quiet, understated, and riveting. It also describes the travails of the Aurora expedition, intended to lay the groundwork for Shackleton on the other side of the continent.
