Black and white photograph of a whaling vessel amongst ice. Her foremast and mainmast are square rigged, with some sails set, but her mizzen sails are furled. Judging by the angle of her mizzen spars she may be barque rigged, which suggests she may be 'Diana.' The vessel is in the background, hull up behind a frozen sea of ice and snow.
