An "almost perfectly preserved" watercolour painting has been discovered in an historic hut in Antarctica, dating back more than 118 years.The painting, dated 1889, is of a 'Tree Creeper' bird and done by revered scientist Dr Edward Wilson, who died alongside Captain Robert Falcon Scott and three others on their return from the South Pole in 1912.Fire safety double standard revealed in Grenfell aftermath Improved fire safety standards that could have prevented the Grenfell Tower disaster are promoted to businesses by the same company that advises the Government on building regulations.

Paper Conservator Josefin Bergmark-Jimenez found the painting while cleaning a paper portfolio found in the hut.

"I opened it and there was this gorgeous painting, I got such a fright that I jumped and shut the portfolio again," she said.

"I then took the painting out and couldn't stop looking at it - the colours, the vibrancy, it is such a beautiful piece of work.

I couldn't believe it was there." She says the Antarctic conditions were the perfect way to preserve the painting.

Martin, Jr., was an avid tennis player since his days on the Norte Dame tennis team in the 1940s, a team which included Chris Evert's father. He got me interested in tennis when I was in my teens and for years we would play on Sundays with my sister and brother in law at the Mission Valley Tennis Club which was just recently torn down.Three of the six racquets in the photograph are "hand me downs" from my dad and upon reflection, I've never have bought a tennis racquet for myself.Tennis racquets show the rapid increase in technology since my childhood.When I was young, the only racquets were wood as represented by the Spalding "Doris Hart" model racquet on the far left which I obtained for free at a garage sale. The museum includes neat older pieces of technology, but not things I actively collect.
