Fireworks in 1908

another "content over style" heritage web page from Steve Johnson Cyberheritage

click to enlarge, large files 900k, but well worth it as they are superb and will print out to A4

This appears to be a tender or contract to supply a firework display on January 27th 1908. On second study, it appears it be a programme of the display. The grand total of all was only 30 ( Thirty Pounds)...and it has 25inch shells...in circumference, now my "pye" maths were never much good..so what is that in diameter?!

Let`s have a closer look at it. Most scans are scanned at half size, so they should print out at half the size of the original - except when mentioned otherwise.

The colour thumbnail above at right is the frontispiece. The one on it`s left is another unrelated Pain`s original. Then we have -

Hope you all liked that...something you do not see every day.
