Freeze Frame archive

A new JISC-funded online resource has been launched ( that makes a host of photographic images available covering Polar exploration from 1845-1982. The resources are held in a collection by the Cambridge University Scott Polar Research Institute and include biographies, expedition accounts and commentaries. More than 20,000 images are available through galleries which cover topics such as ice and icebergs, ships, and wildlife. The image bank is fully searchable and can be viewed as a slideshow.
