A full-length photograph of Captain R. F. Scott in full polar clothing standing next to the Nansen-designed sledge. His right foot is resting on the sledge frame with his right hand on his knee. The sledge is fully loaded with equipment and the tent poles can be seen lashed to the top.
Scott is wearing a canvas over-jacket with the canvas webbing attached to large fur gloves, a knitted balaclava, and over-trousers tied with putties over finnesko fur boots.
The photograph was taken on the day that Scott returned to Cape Evans from Hut Point where they had been laying depots ready for the scientific and South Pole expeditions later in the year.
