Vintage photo of Robert Falcon Scott and members of his Terra Nova Expedition of 1910 - 1913 at the South Pole in Antarctica in January 1912. Captain Scott, Captain Lawrence "Titus" Oates, Dr Edward Wilson, Lieutenant Henry Robertson "Birdie" Bowers and Petty Officer Edgar Evans famously reached the geographic Pole on January 17 1912 but found that Norwegian Roald Amundsen had beaten them there by just over a month. All five men died on the return journey. Pictured left to right at the Pole are: Oates (standing), Bowers (sitting), Scott (standing in front of Union Jack flag on pole), Wilson (sitting), Evans (standing). The photo was taken by Bowers using a piece of string to operate the camera shutter.
