Caught 'Storm on Everest' again last night and was looking up Everest junk online.
There's a great collection of photos from the Brittish's 3rd attempt where Mallory disapeared (his body was found in 1999- the first picture is the clothes found on his body).
The thing I found interesting in these first two pic's (Mallory is in middle of second photo) are the clothes they wore. They're tailored clothes from L.L. Bean which, is pretty amazing.
The last photo I really like- cause who's packing white shoes for an Everest climb these days but, I'm sure that was standard Brittish expedition packing then.
You can't wear trekking boots on an oceanliner.
