100-year-old Negatives Discovered in Antarctic

A stash of exposed but undeveloped film was found at an old supply depot in Antarctica. The depot had been built by the doomed Terre Nova expedition (1910-1913) and then restocked by the Ross Sea Party with supplies for Ernest Shackleton's 1914-1917 expedition, which never collected them. It is believed that the negatives were left by the Ross Sea Party, who were stranded when their ship blew out to sea in a blizzard. The 22 negatives have been carefully developed, and came out pretty clear, considering they've been frozen into a block of ice for a century! -via the Presurfer
