The remains of a whaling station. During the 19th and first half of the 20th centuries, whaling ships used such stations to process whale carcasses. The stations had living accommodations and support services - movies, libraries, shops, and even illicit ways of producing alcoholic beverages. Some stations had hospitals. Once whaling oil prices dropped, most of the whaling stations were abandoned.
