‘Stopped by the ice off Cape Prescott’

Maritime view of H.M.S.Alert stopped by sea ice off Cape Prescott, Ellesmere Island, part of Nunavut, Canada.

Plate from the book Narrative of a voyage to the Polar Sea during 1875-6 in H.M. ships ‘Alert’ and ‘Discovery’ by George Strong Nares, vol.1 (Sampson Low, London, 1878).

Alert and Discovery were the Royal Navy vessels employed on the British Arctic Expedition 1875-1876 commanded by Sir George Nares. The vessels progressed between Ellesmere Island and Greenland and into to the Lincoln Sea. In his introduction to the published account of the expedition Nares stated that: “The Illustrations in the present work are...reproductions of photographs taken by Mr. F. [eg Thomas] Mitchell, Paymaster of H.M.S.’Discovery’, and Mr. George White, Assistant Engineer of H.M.S.’Alert’...”.

Original: woodburytype print, 1875
