Caption: Antarctic explorer shaving. British Royal Navy surgeon and zoologist George Murray Levick (1876-1956) shaving by candlelight in 1911 in the winter quarters hut 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 (including Levick) landed in January 1911 and spent two seasons exploring on and around the Ross Ice Shelf. Scott and four others died in 1912 returning from the South Pole. Levick activities included studying penguins. He later published 'Antarctic Penguins: a study of their social habits' (1914). Photograph by Levick.
