His Master’s Voice

While looking for something else entirely, I came across this fascinating photograph of a dog and a phonograph. It was taken by National Geographic photographer Herbert G. Ponting in 1911 in Antarctica. The dog, named Chris, belonged to explorer Captain Robert Falcon Scott, who took a gramophone along on the ill-fated Terra Nova Expedition. Although neither Scott nor Chris survived the expedition, Ponting did not accompany them to the South Pole, and lived to take many more pictures.
