Antarctic base camp construction. British shipwright Francis E. C. Davies working to build the hut (porch at left) at Cape Evans on 10 January 1911 during the British Antarctic Expedition (1910-1913). The shore party had landed here six days earlier and would use the hut during the darkness and cold of the long polar night. Davies, the ship carpenter, left with the Terra Nova. 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.
