These following images were all taken by Lt Victor Magnus a officer in the Royal Navy stationed in Halifax at the time of the explosion.

The images show the moment two warships collided into each another in December 1917, triggering an explosion which killed nearly 2,000 people.

Amateur photographer Victor, who was based in Halifax in the Canadian state of Nova Scotia, was said to ‘always had a camera around his neck’ and was able to grab a series of shots of the original ‘big bang’.
