LIEUTENANT GERALD DOORLY
A small collection of 23 gelatin silver prints photographs, [February 1903-February 1904], 11 x 8 cm, captioned on verso in pencil or ink by Doorly.
A fine series chronicling events during the relief voyages of the Morning, under Captain William Colbeck. The Morning, seven weeks after leaving New Zealand, found the Discovery held fast in the ice, in February 1903. The present photographs by Doorly (the third officer on the Morning) include the first sighting of Scott's ship, views of the Discovery icebound, re-fuelling, informal portraits of expedition members (including Scott, Evans, Wilson and Shackleton), and natural history studies. The series concludes with documentary photographs of the eventual release of the Discovery from the ice in February 1904. (23)
