This drawing was clipped from a magazine. It shows a three masted ship stuck in a field of ice, with a small group of people standing alongside. On the left, the sun is low above the horizon. The caption beneath reads: 'The Midnight Sun: Christmas 1898. The 'Belgica' remained frozen tight in the ice as here shown, and never moving, except as she moved with the whole ice-field, from March 4, 1898, to February 14, 1899.'
