Early Images Of Antarctica

Here's another wonderful collection of historic images, this time documenting an expedition to the Antarctic in 1911 by Dr. Douglas Mawson. This was the first Australian journey to Antarctica, and it took three years. Not only is this collection a rare glimpse into life a century ago far from most of our homes, it's a look at early explorers living their day to day lives in one of the harshest and most unforgiving environments on the planet. Beyond that, the images are as beautiful as they are interesting—something that the Brain Pickings blog does a great job finding.
