Port Chalmers Maritime Museum was fascinating.  Its collection includes all kinds of shipping and pioneer memorabilia, including what is purported to be Shackleton’s typewriter.  In the 19th century deck cabin I saw a Moses basket identical to one we were given by an elderly neighbour when our first daughter was born.  124 more words
