    Late last night I received this photo from same guy I had the suitcase of fireworks from.......... saw it on my phone first and honestly thought he had found a fantastic wooden sign........... this morning I noticed the bricks...and before anyone says am I going to dismantle it........... unfortunately the building has been demolished some time ago...........

    That's a great sign! Shame it couldn't be salvaged, I'd have gladly had it as part of my garage or house!

    Now where does one go for smallwares these days?

    I was told Hopes Carr Stockport, but demolished some years ago........... I would have loved to have been able to buy that wall, dismantle it and save it.... has been done on US Airbases to rescue wartime pin-up art,

  7. Lovely piece of history, shame it couldn't have been salvaged, just shows how big the British fireworks industry was.
