Caption: Terra Nova Antarctic exploration. Expedition members and dogs by a towering iceberg and ice formation named Castle Berg. They are part of 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. Scott led a polar party southwards in November 1911 in an attempt to be the first to reach the South Pole. He and four others died in 1912 on the return journey. Photographed on 17 September 1911 by Herbert George Ponting.
