A ship of Discovery.
Frenchman Jean Baptiste Charcot used this vessel during the period 1908-1936 and mainly went to the antarctic.
The vessel was equipped with electric lights in 1908, one of the first of this kind.
Also fitted with sleighs and there were goggles for all crew to avoid snow-blindness.
