Narrative

Small bay between Andrews Point and Briggs Peninsula along the NE coast of Anvers Island, in the Palmer Archipelago. Presumably discovered by whalers working in this area who gave the name Inverleith or Leith Harbor. Inverleith Harbor ("inver" meaning the place of meeting of rivers or where a river falls into the sea or take) is recommended because the name Leith Harbor is used elsewhere in the Antarctic. Leith, Scotland, is the home of Salvesen and Co., a whaling firm which has operated extensively in Antarctic waters.
