Author: Heinz Kohnen

Published: 1981
ISBN: 3-7857-0289-2
Picture caption: Die 1957/58 versunkene erste Halley Bay Station tritt an der Schelfeiskante wieder ans Tageslicht. (The original 1957/58 Halley Bay Station reappears to the light of day at the edge of the ice shelf.)
Picture attribution: D. Möller, Braunschweig.

The book's text suggests that the photograph was taken from Polarsirkel when that boat was chartered by the Germans for the 79/80 expedition, and taken during January or February 1980.

I was at Halley when they visited in early 1980.
