The Discovery (1901) at Lady Newnes Bay.

A view from an elevated position on the snow-covered land looking back to the Discovery (1901), a research/exploration ship, alongside the ice shelf. In the middle distance are a couple of crew men. The high exposed cliffs of Antarctica can be seen in the background.

[Possibly the image in the album has been swapped with ALB0346.8, as ALB0346.07 fits that caption better].
