Caption: Arctic exploration. Members of the Soviet North Pole-1 expedition packing a sled with supplies at the end of their mission. North Pole-1 (Russian: Severniy polyus-1, SP-1) was a drifting station established on an ice floe 20km from the geographic North Pole on 21 May 1937. The four scientists, Ivan Papanin, Ernst Krenkel, Evgeny Fedorov and Petr Shirshov, conducted various experiments on meteorology and hydrology while the floe drifted some 2850km over the next 234 days. The crew were picked up by icebreakers near the coast of Greenland on 19 March 1938.
