Antarctic negatives

Antarctic-2

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.
