98-year-old photo negatives discovered in Antarctica

A bit of an interesting story for all here about photos found that were frozen.

quote:

In 1915, an ill-fated expedition known as the Ross Sea Party took to the New Zealand side of Antarctica to establish supply depots for explorers. After their ship broke loose from the moorings, the six men were stranded and struggled to survive, spending three years on the continent before they were eventually rescued. Now, nearly a century later, a new discovery suggests the men may have left behind more than we realized.

Restoring one of the supply huts used by the party, Antarctic conservators discovered a box of 22 unprocessed cellulose nitrate negatives, believed to have been left there by the Ross Sea Party

Be patient. They're 95 years old.



BTW. Were these found by the stranded climate scientists?

It's amazing that they survived that harsh weather for 3 years.

I wonder if they'll ever find that secret underground Nazi facility that was supposedly researching anti gravity warships.the ones that U530 and U977 were rumored to have dropped scientists and technology off at when the war ended.

No solid proof has ever come to light that it exists, but there are many theories.

Would be funny if the photos turn out to be of homosexual activities.

No, they had to eat the small white dogs to stay alive.

It was a few years ago that I first saw color pictures of battle that were taken in the trenches of France during WWI, they were rather interesting to see. The assembled troops of the French forces included some blacks fighting along side the white soldiers of the era.

The French used large numbers of troops from the colonies.

would actually be funny if they had a photobomb or two, decades before the concept was rediscovered in modern times.

Why? Do you find homosexual activities inherently "amusing?" Do you think homosexuals are clowns? You make me sick.

Awesome find, OP. Thanks for sharing. Fascinating stuff.
