Sailors in search of the lost Arctic explorer Sir John Franklin (17861847) fend off polar bears. In the spring of 1845, Franklin had embarked on a British expedition to find the Northwest Passage to connect the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. He and and his 128-member crew were last seen that July. After three years, the Admiralty offered a large reward to find Franklin, setting off a series of rescue attempts, among them the British expedition portrayed here under the command of Sir John Ross (17771856).
