Old Brook bangers

  1. I was lucky enough for a customer to bring these in my shop today to go in my vintage collection.
    Could someone give a date please.

    I've always thought they were from the 50's but don't have any price lists from that time ....... all I know is that by 1964 their bangers were priced at 2d

    This is actually a box I own and it has one or two bands of the yellow banger towards the bottom. I guess they were sold at the same time. I believe they are 1950s as most bangers had increased to over a penny by the 1960's.

    This was a smaller box I found in Flitwick couple of years back with few remaining bangers still in place..... a half size version of the above stock boxes. 72 bangers instead of 144
