This mounted black and white print shows the Dundee whaling ship 'Esquimaux' in pack ice. The vessel has her jib, foresails and some sails on her mainmast set and there is smoke coming from her funnel, but she is static in the ice. Her whaleboats are suspended from davits and her crows nest is raised.There is a collection of men, presumably her crew, standing on the ice as if posing for the camera.
