"More like a new mining town than a scientific station in the Antarctic...expedition members unloading stores during the changeover. Australian Official Photograph by George Lowe."--Printed on label on verso.

"Between December and March each year, at the height of the brief Antarctic summer, the Australian National Antarctic Research Expedition relief ship Kista Dan visits the three Australian Antarctic Scientific Research stations on Heard and Macquarie Island and at Mawson on the Antarctic mainland. On February 9 this year she pulled into the tiny harbour at Mawson. During the next three weeks she offloaded 450 tons of stores, and the men of the old and new parties completed an extensive building programme which more than doubled the number of buildings on the station."--Printed on label on verso.

Condition: Buckled.
