Series 9, Accidents and Disasters, consists of 122 negatives separated into three series: Automobile Accidents, Train Wrecks, and Fires. The automobile accidents include both small, private vehicles and large tractor-trailers. They range from small, harmless accidents to overturned or completely destroyed vehicles. The images of train wrecks display the derailment of a train, while the images of fires culminate in a small number of buildings aflame, with fire fighters on the scene. Many of these photographs may have been taken for insurance purposes since Garber was president of Garbers-Moyers-Johnson Insurance Agency.
