Century Old Photos Found in Antarctica

It is always somewhat impressive to hear how photos can still be retrieved from memory cards of cameras under the most desolate of conditions but some century old photos found in Antarctica may have just taken this notion to a whole new level of astounding. A whole collection of century-old undeveloped photographs were recently recovered from an abandoned hut in Antarctica and were processed. The images show people and scenes from a failed 1915 Antarctic expedition during which a team of explorers became stranded in the harsh cold weather after their ship blew out at sea.

The 22 images were clumped together in a small box that had been preserved by being enclosed in ice.

The cellulose nitrate negatives were discovered by members of the New Zealand Antarctic Heritage Trust, who traveled to Antarctica’s to refurbish and preserve an early 20th-centruy explorer’s hut. Despite being hidden in ice for nearly 98 years, the negatives were fairly well preserved according to Wired. The images show Ross Island as it was a century ago, and even shows the expedition’s main scientist, Alexander Stevens.

“It’s an exciting find and we are delighted to see them exposed after a century,” Nigel Watson, Antarctic Heritage Trust’s executive director, told CNN.

The hut belonged to an earlier explorer, Captain Robert Falcon Scott, who arrived in the South Pole in 1912. Ten members of the team of explorers were forced to live in Scott’s hut. Three died before they were rescued in 1916.

New Zealand’s Antarctic Heritage Trust processed the negatives as part of its Ross Sea Heritage Restoration Project per International Business Times.

“It’s the first example that I’m aware of, of undeveloped negatives from a century ago from the Antarctic heroic era,” Antarctic Heritage Trust Executive Director Nigel Watson told Peta Pixel. “There’s a paucity of images from that expedition.”
