Wow Blasterbert - how did you exercise such self control not to fire these? Ah, the 2d cannon complete with the little red plastic safety cap on the fuse - that brings back memories. What a collector's item!

When I was very young, about 8 or so, I recall having some small squibs that flew around at random for a few seconds and finished with a report. If I recall correctly, the end of the case was crimped and closed with sealing wax or somesuch, the only firework where I ever saw such a thing.

Wonderful photographs! I remember standing in the local shop and staring at the big glass case which contained all of the largest fireworks he had to offer. They were all out of reach - both financially and physically - of all us schoolboy 'Penny for the Guy' ers though. I often wondered who'd be rich enough to buy them and I would delight in trying to imagine what the colours and explosions could possibly be like. Lovely to see some of them again.
