  • "This as the most beautiful iceberg seen by the Expedition. It was frozen into the ice about a mile from the hut, and provided Mr. Ponting with material for many fine studies. In shape it resembled a fine old medieval castle, hence the name given it. It was about 100 feet high, and was a good example of the picturesque shapes into which overturned icebergs are sometimes worn by the erosive action of the wind and water" No. 71. Fine Art Society Exhibition catalogue.
