Rare Pictures: Scott's South Pole Expedition, 100 Years Later January 19, 2012
Often found in front of a computer, loom or sewing machine.
I remember reading a book about the polar expeditions as a little girl and I've always been a bit fascinated by the bravery, the adventure and the sheer toughness. I read Apsley Cherry-Garrard's "The Worst journey in the World" quite a few years ago and still found the story incredible as an adult.
The photos that the National Geographic have posted as part of the 100 years anniversary are delightful and well worth a browse.
