The Ritz? Not ex­actly

The Sunday Post (Dundee) - - Opinion -

The area shown in this pho­to­graph was ac­tu­ally cargo space trans­formed by Scots car­pen­ter Harry “Chippy” McNish.

The in­ge­nious McNish, who came from Port Glas­gow, used wood in­tended for the hut on the shores of Antarc­tica. To the sides there are tiny cab­ins, each for two men. In the mid­dle is the only com­mon space. It was jok­ingly called The Ritz be­cause it was the cramped op­po­site of the plush London ho­tel. Liv­ing right on top of each other with nowhere else to go must have pro­duced ten­sions.
