    Trafalgar and Waterloo Single Ignition Boxes, about 2002 to 2003?

    I've attached a video too, though it's an old wmv so it's a challenge playing it (VLC works for me). Photos and video by Tony Webster.

    found two different types of orion's bomb, one must be a lot older than the other 007.JPG
     
  4. Orion's bomb were great. They contain actual ball shells rather than the normal cylinders.
    Would like an early one for my small 90s cake stash.

    1990’s & early millennium Black Cat. Their golden age in the UK.

    Yes they certainly were. Some true modern day classics. I imagine the likes of Green Bamboo and Hale Bopp would still feature in peoples favourites of all time.

    A closer look at some of the artwork on the earlier pieces from circa 95/96, just as Black Cat were getting into their stride....

    ‘Happy Spring report’s’ artwork (the one with the fisherman attacking the shark) is typical of some of the early Chinese cake imports (almost nothing to do with the name of the cake as discussed in another thread). Nice original label on the ‘explosions on Jupiter’ piece.
    I also particularly love the artwork on this early ‘cannonade’ cake.
