  2. Beaut Kev.

    I assume the crackers have indoor fireworks inside them? I recall 2 different types of crackers from the early 1960's: one sort like yours with the IF inside, the other which had the IF in the base of the cracker box behind cardboard windows, like an Advent calender :)
     
  3. Happy Christmas Escht always looking forward to your next find just so so jealous cant wait for next year
     
  4. Very nice Kev. I had some for Christmas crackers with indoor fireworks in one year but that must have been 1980’s.
    Merry Christmas

    Indoor fireworks at Christmas...how well I remember..after Lunch on the Dining room table...
    They were principally much the same..."The fiery serpent"....light the tip with a fag..and...hey presto...dog turd!..Mount Etna..another DT...and the folded brown paper fern...result a pile of black ash!!..nevertheless they were great fun...
