This Endurance Expedition group picture taken on the sea ice in front of the ship is from Frank Hurley's own photo album in the archives of Scott Polar Research Institute. Hurley had all the expedition members sign the album around the original print.
After the Endurance was crushed and sank the expedition was faced with the prospect of getting themselves and thousands of pounds of supplies across the sea ice to the Antarctic Peninsula, 350 nautical miles (600+ kms) to the west.
