JOSÉ SOBRAL
Signed postcard photo, shown with former Argentine President Mitre
Postcard Photograph signed: "José M. Sobral". B/w, 3½x5½. Captioned (in Spanish) "General Mitre with Second Lieutenant Sobral". Addressed by an unknown hand to a Amalia Figeroa, in the city, postmarked Buenos Aires, December 28, 1903, 5-centavo Argentine stamp affixed. José Sobral (1880-1961), an Argentine naval officer, scientist, author and explorer, joined the Swedish Antarctica expedition of 1902, and spent two winters marooned on Snow Hill Island, in the Weddell Sea, after a relief ship was crushed by ice. Argentina's base camp for its expedition to the South Pole (1965) was named after Sobral. Sobral left the navy, becoming a geologist and mining engineer. He worked for many years for the Argentine oil company, YPF, and wrote several books. Bartolomé Mitre (1821-1906), shown with Sobral in this picture, was President of Argentina from 1862-1868, and afterward a well known historian. Lightly spotted. Rounded corners. Otherwise, fine condition.
