Caption: Terra Nova Antarctic lecture. Expedition photographer Herbert Ponting (operating projector, 1870-1935) lecturing on Japan on 16 October 1911 during the British Antarctic Expedition (1910-1913). Also known as the Terra Nova Expedition, the primary expedition objectives were scientific. Led by Robert Falcon Scott, the shore party of 34 spent two seasons exploring on and around the Ross Ice Shelf. The groups heading south in support of the attempt to reach the South Pole started to leave base camp from 24 October, a week after this lecture. Scott and four others died in 1912 returning from their attempt to be the first to reach the South Pole.
