This Griffin bus never made it to Abertillery in 1923.

14 of the 35 miners on board were treated at Blaina Hospital but no fatalities.

Stoob,
As you mention 35 miners on board, I can only think that this Griffin bus must have been connected with the Arael-Griffin Colliery at Six Bells. Is this so? Was it an "ordinary", local bus or was it transport to Six Bells Colliery, arranged by the mine owners? Though I suppose that seems unlikely, somehow!
Do you know how the accident happened - and exactly where?
Anthony

Believe the Griffin Motor Company at Brynmawr was founded in 1921.
The bus hit a pothole and it wrecked the steering mechanism between Blaina and Abertillery. Possibly more than one colliery destination.

Leslie Webb and two female members of the brewery family in the early 1920's

This Webb's steam powered wagon didn't make it either.

Should re-size them, but mega problems before so best left for now.
