Like the previously posted beer cans, this one was recovered from Antarctica’s Dry Valleys across the sound from McMurdo Station. It’s likely the oldest of the lot (note the steel lid,
pre-dating aluminum ends) and certainly the most weather-punished. Its rich textures and
varied colors demanded that both sides of the cylinder be photographed.
Traces of an indecipherable label design appear in the first view. If anyone recognizes its identity, please let me know.
Much thanks to Marble Point camp manager “Crunch” Noring for finding and donating these artifacts to the Long View Project.
