These restored kennels from  Robert Falcon Scott's expedition to the Antarctic are on Quail Island in Lyttelton Harbour.  

23 Siberian huskies purchased from the north-west coast of Russia stayed on the island between November and December 1901 with their handler, William Weller, before leaving for the Antarctic.
