Happy birthday, Alice!

In 1898, the research ship Belgica became trapped in the ice around Antarctica. Men on board spied what they believed to be a mission group approaching, and dressed to meet their rescuers. The great polar explorer Roald Amundsen, sent out to greet the group, saw that the figures moving across the ice were penguins.
