Antarctic negatives


Century old negatives have been found in Captain Scott’s expedition base in the Antarctic. The identity of the photographer is not known for certain but is probably Arnold Patrick Spencer-Smith, the expedition photographer. As you can see, the negatives have stuck together into a wad, although they have been separated successfully, revealing partially damaged scenes of the expedition.

The complete set can be viewed at the website of the Antarctic Heritage Trust.
