Hut Point and Vince Cross looking south
A view from the sea ice looking south with the snow-covered headland of Hut Point on the centre-left. On the top is the wooden cross made to commemorate George Vince, RN, who had died during Scott's 1901-1904 British Antarctic Survey expedition.
This scene was described by Ponting in his book: 'The snow-clad promontory is a most impressive sight. On its summit stands a great white cross, erected to the memory of George T. Vince, one of the men of the Discovery Expedition, who lost his way in a blizzard, and his life by falling over the near-by ice-cliffs. This farmost symbol of Christian faith on earth, gleaming golden in the evening sunlight against a leaden southern sky...'
