    After a complete wipe-out on my old computer I think I managed to save all my photo files from the old hard drive...... had been on Windows Xp now up to date on new system with Windows 10. Lost graphics card and then motherboard........ I hate auto passwords when this happens..busy trying to rebuild all my login passwords, over the years they changed and not all the same anyway..... time for old fashioned notebook somewhere safe.........
    The Pains box I mentioned.
    I think between Steve A and myself that we tied it down to around 1938....

    Thanks Kev. I have uploaded it now as I found it on the other thread. I did post after it.This box is shown on your 1939 list. Good luck with the computer. My mobile packed up a couple of weeks ago and that was bad enough!! I use a little program called Password Safe which is very good.

    I've updated the images with all of the boxes and fireworks shown on Kev's 1939 Price List. It has added around 100 images.

    Many thanks Richard. This added three images as I am keeping all of the variations. The Pinwheel I had was for the European market and yours in British. The Humming Spider I had did not have a red spike and yours does. I can remember this change occurring and being very disappointed as they look much better with spikes! The Jumbo Jet I had was the first design made at Salisbury whereas yours is the second type with the colour coded price band.

    Also dug this one out, notice Roman Candle on a stick, don't know if anything in here is of use to you. I haven't yet found a single detail photo of it so presumably just did contents picture

    Kev..the one on the stick..I see it's a Golden Rain...and noticeably larger than usual..making it quite unusual ..I've never seen one of these....presumably this version was created for safer hand held use.....
    ..and the gawky Roman soldier on the RC...this comes...for my money..during the best of wrap designs from Pains...

    Also can't see the Pains Silver Spray in your listing, only have this group shot so not sure how well it will come out, again with wooden dowel handles.
