Description: 1904 (April) postcard from Captain Robert Falcon Scott, Antarctica to Ireland.
Wrench''s picture postcard for the 1901-04 British Antarctic Expedition, addressed in Scott''s hand to a Mrs Wrench in Ballybrack, Co. Dublin (possibly a relation of the publisher of the card).

Other Notes: Wrench''s issued four postcards to be posted at different stages of the expedition to subscribers who helped finance the venture. This example was posted at Christchurch, New Zealand on the return journey. The illustration on the card erroneously shows a polar bear which is native to the Arctic only.
