Dr. E.A. Wilson was the expedition doctor on the Terra Nova expedition and was one of the South Pole Party who never returned. He was also a water-colour artist of some skill and made made drawings and paintings of the journey of which a few are featured here. These colour pictures add a new dimension to Scott's expedition as they place the men in a real world almost exactly like ours. Antarctica is timeless and the Antarctica that Scott and the other early explorers experienced is there exactly the same today except for a few areas of habitation. It can be too easy to look at the often grainy black and white photographs of the time and imagine their world was very different to ours, it wasn't so different really and the landscape and wildlife in particular are exactly the same.

All of these pictures were first printed in "Scott's Last Expedition", 1913.
