    Before I saw the back of this photograph I was somewhat skeptical of it actually being what it was purported to be because of the 99.999999999999999999% "looks like" identifications are wrong. However, there is a period ink inscription on the back stating that it was taken in Antarctica and is of Shackelton's ship in ice. The photograph is faded but there appears to be some sort of tent camp set up in the lower left hand corner.

      Thanks Scott! I'm assuming its the Nimrod but I'm not too familiar with Shackleton so it could be the Endurance.
