Captain Scott's Departure for Antarctica

Two photographs reporting the departure of Captain Scott and his team on board the Terra Nova, bound for Antarctica where they would attempt to reach the South Pole first. Top picture shows the crew on board waving to those they were leaving behind. The bottom picture shows the Siberian ponies taken by Scott to haul supplies. Scott's predominant use of ponies and motor sledges over dogs (used by the successful Norwegian, Amundsen) is cited as one of the reasons Scott failed in his attempt to reach the South Pole first. Date: 1911

View toward Dolmabahce, handing control of Istanbul to Turks

In August 1923, the Allied Powers turned over Istanbul to the Nationalists, marking the final departure of occupation armies from Anatolia. This card (with a view over the Bosphorus toward the Dolmabahce Palace and Mosque) marks the occasion of the Allied Generals handing over the custody of the city at the Dolmabahce Palace. View from HMS Marlborough. HMS Marlborough was an Iron Duke-class battleship of the British Royal Navy, named in honour of John Churchill, 1st Duke of Marlborough. Built at Devonport Royal Dockyard between January 1912 and June 1914 and entered service just prior to First World War. Assigned to the Mediterranean Fleet after the war, Marlborough took part in the Allied intervention in the Russian Civil War (in the Black Sea 191920). She was also involved in the Greco-Turkish War. Date: 1923
