Another set of historical images

I just found a series of cigarette cards depicting the Arctic and Antarctic! They were produced by John Player & Sons in 1915, and the series is titled Polar Exploration A Series. I’m working on my Greening of the Arctic website, which is part of the International Polar Year, so these are quite interesting to me. Most of the cards shown depict the Antarctic; I guess I’ll have to scout around and see if I can find the rest of the series. There is a good explanation of the Aurora included too.

I’ve also added a couple more links to coloring pages.
