Spectacular accidents have a unique power to capture the public imagination and when such disasters occurred in the late Victorian and Edwardian era, local publishers lost no time in capitalizing on them by producing postcards, often with crowds of unabashed bystanders posing with the mangled wreckage. This collection of over 200 photographs illustrates crashes in Britain, mostly between 1890 and 1960, and also includes some international and modern tram collisions.
