According to the vendor, Milton Kent had dealings with Antarctic photographer Herbert Ponting before Ponting's death in 1935. This might explain the presence of two glass negatives of the Terra Nova in the Antarctic during Scott's last expedition of 1910-1912. Ponting's archive was purchased by the Scott Polar Institute for 533,000 pounds in 2004 -- Curator of Photographs (Mar 2007)
