During the 1986-87 summer the Old Pole access ladder was installed, along with this customized and autographed cover. It was recovered during the 2009 winter and is (presumably) hanging on the wall of the LO or some other appropriate place.
Four people signed this artifact over the years...the most obvious here is JP which I have to figure is John Parlin, he may have been around during that 1986-87 summer but he most certainly was around later, he wintered three times...as a carpenter in 1991 and 1993, and as station manager in 1995.
And Bill Johnson, construction supervisor in 2004-05
including the 2005 winter when I worked with him. He
was involved with resealing the entrance for NSF.
Most of the outdoor pictures were sent to me by lead heavy mechanic Jack Sharp...the top picture was part of a gigapan panorama by Ella Derbyshire...and the documentation on the lid is from Jack's coworker Keith Berry. Next, lighting up the LO.
