Caption: Collecting water in Antarctica. Expedition member using a teapot to collect fresh meltwater from a stream cascading down a rocky slope in Antarctica. This scene was photographed on 7 January 1911, three days after the shore party had landed as 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 33 spent two seasons exploring on and around the Ross Ice Shelf. Scott and four others died in 1912 returning from their journey to the South Pole. Photographed by Herbert George Ponting.
