The Discovery (1901) 8 miles from winter quarters.

A view across broken pack-ice. In the distance is the research/exploration ship Discovery (1901), whose starboard broadside is partially obscured by a large piece of ice. Shackelton in his article in the 'Illustrated London News' dated this photograph to 7 February 1902, just before the Discovery was anchored in McMurdo Sound.
