You know the one where D&D's sledge capsizes when nearly at the Pole? The picture which some people say ought to be the other way up.
Well I've found a comment by AR about it, in a letter, and I don't think it has been dissected on Tarboard yet.

To G Wren Howard, Sep 12, 1933

Hi! I counted on you to hurl forth the worst of those pictures. ... What about that niggly one of them being capsized in the snowstorm, with Dick's legs sticking up as he goes head first into the snow. My wife says that picture is a disgrace, and that I ought not even to have let you see it. I only let it go because I had nowt better, and because a small girl liked it.
