Lantern slide made of glass

Museum number 1972-351-104

This photograph was probably taken from the deck of a whaling ship. It shows flat calm water leading to a coastling of steep sided mountains above an area of thick ice. The mountains have deep ravines or gulleys running down their slopes, each white with ice. There is also ice across their level tops.
