Photo Taken Just Before The Newport Dock Disaster

Photo reference number: 1536

The trench which collapsed and flooded resulting in over 30 deaths.

This photo appears to be the same as two others in our database. However, on one of the others the credit goes to a different photographer - "H. Martell, Newport" - rather than "H Gobby" as on this one. On the reverse is a rubber stamp saying "Herbert Gobby, 33 Clarence Street, Newport".
