Antarctic frostbite treatment. Welsh explorer and British Royal Navy petty officer Edgar Evans (right, 1876-1912) applying a dressing to the frostbitten hand of British Royal Navy surgeon Edward Atkinson (left, 1881-1929) on 6 July 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. Scott, Evans and three others died in 1912 returning from their attempt to be the first to reach the South Pole. Photographed by Herbert George Ponting.
