This lantern slide shows the football team of S.S. 'Active' on the ice. The photograph was taken near Spipsbergen in 1894. There are twelve men in the picture, with two carrying long poles. They are in two lines, with the men at the back standing and those in front sitting on the ice. The man second from the right at the back, and the man on the left at the front are both wearing distinctively striped shirts or jumpers.
