Grytviken Whaling station with wrecks

Grytviken is the principal settlement in the United Kingdom territory of South Georgia in the South Atlantic.

Grytviken whaling station on South Georgia was developed in the C19th to process whales caught in the South Atlantic. You can see the tanks to store the oil! It was abandoned as a whaling station in 1965 and the whalers left behind a number of their ships as can be seen. There are some cgood photos at www.galenfrysinger.com/grytviken.htm
