About This Item

Overall, very good -.. Three portraits of the "Westward" a beautiful four-mastered ship, on board the "Westward", each with BAE 1937-9 stamped on the verso; and nine small snapshots of the same with the expedition on verso. The small photographs are snapshots with manuscript text on the verso- "Photo by Mr. Bishop July 1937"; "REP in Lookout on Westward June 1938" & "Southend Pier taken from rigging of Westward June 1939". "At work on board the 'Westward'". Published Daily Telegraph July 1939". The rest of the photographs are unidentified. Also, an advertising memento of the expedition, a paper wrapper for Horlick's Malted Milk, printed on both sides with "British Antarctic Expedition 1937. Horlick's" with other Horlick's information. After three years of fund raising efforts, WWII finally put an end to Ernest Walker's expedition.

Photographs range from 8x6" to 3 1/2 x 2 1/2". The large ones are stamped "Associated Press" on the verso along with the "British Antarctic Expedition 1937-9". The two photos of the ship are have some small creases. One image has a person's faced excised. The Horlicks wrapper measures 13 x 3 1/2". (browned & spotted).
