TLF ID R2938
This is a 1911 black-and-white sepia-toned photograph, taken by Roald Amundsen (1872-1928) at the South Pole, of a dog team hitched to a loaded sled on the snow. A figure dressed in Arctic-style cold weather gear stands beside the sled and a Norwegian flag is stuck in the snow. Apart from three other dogs tethered behind the sled, the background is featureless and the sky merges with the snow-covered ground. The photograph measures 12.5 cm x 8.0 cm.
