The Discovery (1901) frozen in, banked up with snow.

A view from the huts on Hut Point towards the starboard broadside of Discovery (1901), a research/exploration ship. The ship has been backed up with snow to act as a layer of insulation. The windmill can be seen on the foredeck, which was destroyed in a storm on 13 April 1902. The high snow-covered mountains of the Prince Albert Range on Victoria Land are in the background.
