Antarctic memorabilia on show
An intriguing collection of Antarctic memorabilia is on show for the central city library’s latest exhibition.
Antarctica: A Tale to Tell features books, maps and photographs chosen from the library’s special collections and covering a wide period, from early exploration to the Erebus disaster.
One of the earliest pieces on display is the first published account of Antarctica: Journal of the Resolution’s Voyage 17721775, published in 1776.
The exhibition runs until August 24 on the library’s Heritage floor, level 2. Entry is free.
