    Thought I would do a photo round-up of vintage pyro that came my way this last year. I have only included items that came from non-collections, that is to say from attics, sheds and shop store-rooms etc.. It still amazes me what there must still be out there waiting to be recovered, By any measure 2016 was a good year........ hope 2017 can match it
    Happy New Year to all and good hunting........

    Standard size 40 box was one that I was after for years as a kid just so I could have the 3 bar roman candle.
     
  3. Do you guys fire these or just keepsakes?
    Some interesting bits
     
  4. Certainly not, no, these are way too valuable, collectables only.
