Scott's Negatives

British Antarctic Expedition 1910-13: Ponies on the march, Great Ice Barrier, 2 December 1911 (Robert Falcon Scott/Scott Polar Research Institute)

Readers who share my interest in the polar regions may have heard that the Scott Polar Research Institute in Cambridge has launched a campaign to purchase 113 negatives from Scott's Antarctic Expedition. If SPRI are able to raise  £275,000 by 25 March, the negatives will join an outstanding picture library. A full report can be read in The Telegraph and there's more on the campaign at the Polar Museum homepage.
