Vanguard accident - Illustrated London News

The edition of the Illustrated London News dated 21st July 1906 concocted a bizarre “Real and Counterfeit” article showing a pre-planned head-on crash between two steam locomotives, and the “real” story of the Vanguard omnibus accident in which ten men died.
As the magazine was issued just 9 days after the accident many would have preferred the incident to be reported as a simple news item.
However, a couple of the pictures were of parts of the bus which do not feature on the postcards, and that is to be welcomed.
