This is a photo Sir Ernest Shackleton’s voyage on the ship Expedition that was rather ill fated. It was taken by photographer Frank Hurley in 1915. It was part of the British Imperial Trans Antarctic Expedition. The ship became trapped in the Antarctic ice. Mr. Hurley salvaged the photographic plates by diving into the icy water inside the sinking ship.
