Vintage photo circa 1910s of Norwegian polar explorer Roald Amundsen (1872 - 1928) - the first person to reach the geographic South Pole in 1911. Amundsen was a member of the Belgian Antarctic Expedition of 1897 - 1899 and from 1903 - 1906 led the first expedition to successfully sail through Canada's Northwest Passage between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans on his ship Gjoa. Amundsen is most famous for reaching the South Pole on December 14 1911, famously beating Robert Falcon Scott's expedition by just over a month, and in later life he explored the Arctic by air - in 1926 he was part of the first team to fly from Europe to America over the North Pole in a dirigible. Amundsen was killed in 1928 when his aircraft vanished in the Arctic while on a rescue mission. Photo by Harris & Ewing.
