Description (see definition): Lake 0.5 mi long lying N of Neumayer Glacier in South Georgia. Charted and named "White City" by the Br expedition under Shackleton, 1921-22, but this name is considered unsuitable and has never been used locally. Gulbrandsen Lake was named by the UK Antarctic Place-names Committee (UK-APC) in 1957 for Gunnar Gulbrandsen, pattern-maker at the Compania Argentina de Pesca station at Grytviken, 1927-30, carpenter at Stromness, 1945-46, and variously carpenter, dockforeman, dockmaster, and junior officer at the South Georgia Whaling Co. station, Leith Harbor, for several years beginning in 1946.
