1913 Explosion Gallery

This is the full collection of postcards depicting the aftermath of the Senghenydd disaster of October 14, 1913.  They were taken by W. Benton, a photographer from Glasgow, in the days following the explosion at the Universal Colliery which killed 439 miners.  Each postcard was hand captioned on the original negative, and numbered 1 through 25. I've been unable to track down any photographs made by Benton before or after the disaster.  It's a mystery––so if you know anything about the photographer, please do let me know.
