    Tony offered me more than I wanted for it all so had to turn him down, even the offer of free rodent extermination for a year couldn't pursuade me ;););).

  12. this post as taken a bit of sorting out ( and time ) well done kevin . amazing what you can do with your box brownie !
     
  13. I've never seen those size 15 Shrapnel Rockets before with the white and pink label and a picture of the effect and with a pointed top, all the ones i had were red with a flat top of which there are three here, i still have one of the size 20 Parachute Rockets you have there and two of the yellow label ones, always interested in seeing any Parachute Lights as they were always my favourite.

    They also did these in the range, but unfortunately there were none in this batch........ the size 20 rockets are just the later version of the size 15 ones...........

    Is it sad that I’m salivating?!
    Just look at how well those rockets are crafted together, not a rushed job. Each one a sample of perfection.

    Fireworks are an art, from creation to effect.

    Most certainly agree, not like the shoddily mass produced awful rockets today with the horrible labelling etc, they were handcrafted to perfection.
