A port side view of Discovery (1901) off Antarctica

A port side view of the research/exploration ship 'Discovery' (1901) off Antarctica. Some loose pack-ice is floating near the ship, and the landmass of Antarctica can be seen faintly in the background.

The Discovery reached Cape Adare on South Victoria Land on 8 January. On the 9th Shackleton went ashore with Bernacchi (who had been there 2 years before under Borchgrevink) in one of the ship's whalers to leave a message for any relief ships. They next went ashore at Cape Colbeck on 22 January, and again on 3 February in Balloon Bight.
