Narrative

S point of Brabant Island, Palmer Archipelago, and SW entrance point of Chiriguano Bay, was roughly charted by BeAE in January 1898; incorrectly labelled Cap Lagrange (Lagrange Peak, q.v.) (Lecointe, 1903, Pl.20 following p.110; France. SHM chart 5504, 1951). Cabo Lagrange (Argentina. MM chart 106, 1949; Pierrou, 1970, p.463; Chile. IHA, 1974, p.174). The point was photographed from the air by FIDASE, 1956-57. Cape Lagrange, referring to the NE entrance point to Chiriguano Bay (Navy Point, q.v.) (BA chart 3570, 21.ix.1957). Following identification of the feature originally named after C. Lagrange, the present feature was named descriptively Strath Point, strath meaning a stretch of flat land near the sea (APC, 1960, p.7; BA chart 3566, 25.viii.1961).
