It’s not clear that science figures into what these people are doing so well, but they’re certainly very curious. These pictures, taken around Mount Blanc between 1860 and 1890, remind us of just how mobile we’ve come not only because of the internet and the digital age, but also because of the equipment that sustains us in harsher climes. Hoop skirts and canvas tents just don’t cut it on glaciers, especially melting ones. via bldgblog.

Somehow these explorers complete with bowler hats and suits, picking their way over the glaciers, reminds us of H.P. Lovecraft’s “At the Mountains of Madness.”
