A photographer’s notebook left in Antarctica around 100 years ago has been found .
The notebook contains images from 1910 and belonged to George Murray Levick (1876-1956), surgeon, zoologist and photographer – his name is clearly written in the opening pages.
Levick was a part of Scott’s 1910-1913 expedition and a member of the Northern Party. The notebook contains his pencil notes detailing the date, subjects and exposure details for the photographs he took.
The notebook was so old that the binding had been dissolved by 100 years of ice, so the pages could be separated and digitised before repair.
Each page of the notebook was conserved by the Trust in New Zealand before being re-bound into sections and sewn back together and the cover reconstructed.
