Life on a Drifting Station
An aerial view of NP-6. The small building in the foreground is the diesel power station. The big building to the right is the ward room (marine terminology was used on the North Pole stations). The ward room was a dining room and recreation room, with billiards, ping-pong, movies, and a meeting room. Image credit: EWG.
