Unloading Antarctic motor sledge. Expedition members using ropes and a block and tackle to unload a motor sledge from the Terra Nova on 8 January 1911 during the British Antarctic Expedition (1910-1913). The ship had arrived here 4 days earlier. This motor sledge, one of three transported here, was lost when it broke through the ice while being unloaded. Also known as the Terra Nova Expedition, the primary expedition objectives were scientific. Led by Robert Falcon Scott, a 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.
