New images added to Polar Exploration Collection

We have recently added almost 200 new images to the American Geographical Society Library's Polar Exploration collection. These images include photographs from eighteen different expeditions to both the Arctic and the Antarctic and range in date from 1869 to 1948. Check out images from the Ernest Shackleton Trans-Antarctica Expedition, 1914-1917, including images of the ship, Endurance, surrounded by the ice that would eventually crush it; images from the SS Panther Expedition of 1869 in the Arctic, over 50 images from explorer Louise Boyd's expeditions to Greenland and Norway in the 1930's, and lots more!
