Byrd Antarctic Expedition II - Dog team on dangerous ice

Byrd Antarctic Expedition II - Dog team crossing treacherous pressure ice. On his second expedition in 1934, Richard E. Byrd (1888-1957) spent five winter months alone operating a meteorological station, Advance Base, from which he narrowly escaped with his life after suffering carbon monoxide poisoning from a poorly ventilated stove. This expedition is commemorated in a U.S. postage stamp issued at the time, and a considerable amount of mail using it was sent from Byrd's base at Little America, including this actual postcard! (see lower section). A CBS radio station, KFZ, was set up on the base camp ship, the Bear of Oakland and 'The Adventures of Admiral Byrd' were short wave radioed to Buenos Aires then relayed to New York. Date: 1934
