Fox Glacier (2 o 2)

Fox Glacier

This watercolour of the lower end of the Fox Glacier was painted by Sir William Fox, who was premier when he visited in 1872. Originally called the Albert and/or Alfred Glacier, it was renamed after Fox to honour him. Since then most glaciers have melted considerably, and the Fox has thinned and retreated up the valley.
