Narrative

dividing Walker Bay from South Bay, Livingston Island, was roughly charted by Fildes in 1820-21 and called descriptively Black Point (Fildes, 1821b, chart [3]); recharted by DI in 1935; following air photography by FIDASE and ground survey by FIDS, 1956-58, and in association with the names of nineteenth-century sealers in this area, named Hannah Point after the sealing ship Hannah (Capt. James Johnson), of Liverpool, which was wrecked in the South Shetlands Islands, 25 December 1820 (APC, 1959a p.7; BA chart 3205, 25.xi.1962). Punta Sub. Ribes, probably after a junior officer of AAE (Argentina. MM chart 139, 1959). Punta Sur [=south point], in association with South Bay (del Valle and others, 1974, Fig.4, p.23).
