    Knew I had seen these somewhere before, cut down presumably by a shop owner, note no price marking in the versions I have

    Like this on as it shows the old style boxes with their newer replacements, not a big fan of this era but as a research piece this one has some merit.

    Richard, love that Brocks poster.......... This has reminded me that I have a number of posters that I need to get framed up for putting in the house........
     
  10. Who were Globe Fireworks?,never heard of that brand!
     
  11. A standard fireworks poster showing selection boxes from 1990, thing I find strange about the C box pictured on the poster and in the brochure of that year is different to the usual type ones, I've never seen one like this in the flesh, so perhaps like a prototype?.

  13. Standard poster showing selection boxes from 1991 with the actual prices marked up by the shop keeper and also one from the mid 1980s which has uploaded smaller with the earlier boxes.

  19. I particularly love the posters with the blue backgrounds because it's as though they've been printed on touchpaper.
