A photographer’s notebook from over a century ago has been discovered in Antarctica. It belonged to British explorer and photographer George Murray Levick, who was part of Robert Falcon Scott’s last expedition to the continent from 1910 to 1913.
New Zealand’s Antarctic Heritage Trust discovered the notebook outside the expedition base after summer snow melted, exposing the old expedition record.
The notebook is a “Wellcome Photographic Exposure Record and Dairy 1910,” and has Levick’s name clearly written across the front pages. The pages inside are packed with Levick’s photographic records, with various details about his shots jotted on its pages — things like dates, subjects, and exposure details.
