    This may have solved a long standing mystery for me...... From the writing I can see on the torn label on the firework below I assumed it to be a Milk Jar Fountain. However, looking at your 1939 Flyer it names a firework as a Milk Bar Fountain. As I can only see the 'AR' on the label this could be it. Also the fact it was let off in 1945 after WWII during which fireworks were banned and your flyer is from the start of the War in 1939. I also have a similar flyer but customised for a particular shop.

    A few more Brock's postcards. In the third one you can see the small glass illumination lanterns which Brock's used and bore their name (often sold on eBay). Fragments of the glass from these can still be seen in many areas of Bournemouth Gardens where they were used. There is an article about them here: Brock's Illumination Lamps
