Embossed with Vittorio Sella stamp in lower right of print. Inscribed in pencil on mount verso: Bride Peak and Godwin-Austen Glacier / from Camp III / 174? / HK 174 / 8 Loan

Sublime view of the Glacier and Bride Peak. Chogolisa has several peaks, Chogolisa I on the SW face is the highest is 7,665 7,668 m 25,157 ft. 36th highest in the Concordia Region. On the NE side is Chogolisa II/Bride Peak the second highest sub peak at 7,654 m. The Duke of the Abruzzi reached 7,498 m 24,600 ft on this in 1909, establishing his world altitude record.

"On June 25th Sella left us at the base camp and went down to the mouth of the Godwin Austen, taking with him Botta and fifteen loaded coolies. He sent back the latter directly, and on the day following the made the journey down and back a second time, a march of nearly nine hours. We rewarded this extra work and their docility in performing it by some presents of biscuits, a little tea and sugar, chocolate or butter, all of which we had gradually persuaded them to accept. We were astonished to have some of them ask for soap and wash themselves, nearly nude for the purpose, in the icy rivulet between the camp and the moraine."
