N of Fort Point, E Greenwich Island, was roughly charted by the nineteenth-century sealers; described by Fildes as follows: "To the eastward of Point Hardy [now Sartorius Point, q.v.] and near English Straits is a snug little Shallop harbour, in a bight in the Ice Berg as you pass you will distinguish it..." (Fildes, 1821c); recharted by DI, 1934-35; following air photography by FIDASE in 1956 and ground survey by FIDS, 1957-59, and in association with Fildes' original name for Sartorius Point, named after Adm.
