Title : Lines on the ice - Antarctica 2002

Description :
Showcasing the Antarctica collections held by the State Library of New South Wales, Australia, Lines on the Ice is the website that accompanied a 2002 exhibition of the same name. Focusing on the Australasian Antarctic Expedition of 1910 to 1915, this evocative resource is beautifully illustrated with two thousand digitised photographs, maps, illustrations and artifacts such as diaries. It includes photographs taken by Frank Hurley. Not all images relate to Antartica - there are several illustrations from Captain James Cook's second voyage to Australia. The images are set in context through text and an interactive timeline, which details the history of Antarctic expeditions from 1772. An advanced search facility is available. The site is now archived on Pandora, Australia's web archive. The site also contains an Antarctica timeline with information on the history of exploration to the continent, as well as links to further information.
