    History:
    Interesting Fact:
    Some of you older explorers may remember "The Sea Devils" in Dr.Who back in the early 70's. It just so happens that HMS St. George, along with Portsmouth and the Isle Of White were all used to film that six-part series where the Doctor teams up with the Navy.

    The Photo's:

    1. A lovely shot of St. George's main building from the North Cape Building.

    2. An interesting little hallway in North Cape Building full of safe's.

    3. The doors to no where at the end of the hallway.

    4. One very attractive looking safe.

    5. Some machine located above the safe's.

    6. Some CCTV.

    7. A photo that Lil'Pezza took of me on the roof of North Cape.

    8. A large viewpoint on the top of North Cape.

    9. A middle-eastern cardboard cut-out target sprayed with rounds.

    10. Some gorgeous, "steam-punk-esque" generator/fuse box/I don't know.

    11. Let's get a closer look at that switch...

    12. Some Avery industrial sized scales.

    Hi Urban Creed, the "steam-punk-esque"panel you photographed could possibly be a DC (direct current) panel used to operate a machine that needs exact and variable speed control eg, a DC electric motor as opposed to an AC (alternating Current) machine whose speed would be controlled via belts or a gearbox, (not as accurately controllable.
