Daily Mail Abominable Snowman Expedition 1954

In 1954 the DAILY MAIL dispatched a team to the Himalayas to find the Abominable Snowman.  The Daily Mail expedition headed for the British Everest Expedition base camped lead by Mail staffer, journalist Ralph Izzard.

The newspaper spent the equivalent of £1 million today sending a team of journalists and mountaineers on an expedition to the Himalayas in 1954 to find the Abominable Snowman.

They were gone for 15 weeks and were accompanied by ornithologists, zoologists, and 370 porters, who carried tranquilliser guns and a cage.

‘If alive Abominable Snowman was caught, it was to be shipped back to London to be examined.’

Unfortunately, the team, which included the paper’s poker-playing foreign correspondent who appeared at base camp wearing a silk cravat, a golfing jacket and a pair of plimsolls, returned home empty-handed.

C-type prints are notable for their continuous tone and vibrant colours. The first widely used colour print process, modern c-type prints are printed from high resolution digital files produced from drum-scanned negatives or transparencies.

C-type prints use dye-based photographic papers and should not be confused with inkjet, or giclée prints. Read more about C-type printing HERE.
