The “Terra Nova” Held Up In The Pack, [Ice Point In The Foreground, Antarctica]

1910/1960s. Silver gelatin photograph, caption, date and photographer in letterpress on backing below image, 39.3 x 49.8cm. Minor missing portions to edges, laid down on old exhibition mount.

Erroneous caption reads “Captain Robert F. Scott’s ship Discovery [Terra Nova] in the Antarctic, 1910.”

RRS Discovery carried Scott and Shackleton on the first British National Antarctic Expedition from 1901 to 1904. The Terra Nova, shown in this photograph, carried the “ill-fated” 1910 expedition, in which Scott perished in his attempt to get to the South Pole. Illustrated in Royal Geographic Society, With Scott to the Pole, 2004, p226.
