Google Search Helps Uncover a Rare Photograph at the National Library at the National Library of Australia

From a Brief Article in eNews (National Library of Australia)

A small, brown photograph recently uncovered at the Library has been confirmed as the world's only known vintage print of the arrival of Roald Amundsen's 1911 expedition at the South Pole.

The vintage print was brought to light when a Google search led the Curator of the Pictures Collection at the National Library of Norway, Harald Ostgaard Lund, to the National Library of Australia's collection.

An iconic image in Norway, it is expected to go on loan to Norway in 2011 for a special exhibition to mark the 100th anniversary of Amundsen's arrival at the South Pole.
