This sepis print shows two whalers anchored at Lieveley Harbour in Disco Island off Greenland. In the foreground is an area of flat ice with a small boat at left centre and the wreck of a vessel in the centre. The wreck is sheathed in ice and may be of 'Wildfire.' There is a rocky, snow streaked headland on the right and a long, snow, streaked finger of land in the background. Between the wreck and the background land is a stretch of open water, where there are two three masted vessels at anchor. The mount for this photograph has the name 'S. W. Pritchard' at the bottom right, with the address 'Marshall Street, Lochee, Dundee.'
