Freeze Frame: Historic Polar Images

Freeze FrameFreeze Frame is a website which provides access to historic polar images taken between 1845 – 1982 from the Scott Polar Research Institute.

They say: “As part of the preservation programme, negatives, daguerreotypes and lantern slides, which form part of a rich but fragile archive held by the Scott Polar Research Institute at the University of Cambridge, are now available to scientists, researchers, scholars and members of the public.”

Alongside the gallery of images including areas on Air Transport, Ice and Icebergs, and Wildlife, there are other resources such as Survival in Extreme Environments and Expedition Summaries. A resource area currently under development is that of Environmental Change – so one to keep an eye on.

A fascinating website that is interesting for both academic and non-academic purposes.
