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

Rare photos are found locked in a cupboard!!!

or ladies in posh hats!..........& an old firework poster

We know very little about these photos, the places and the people in them; perhaps you do? 

First, click on the above images at the top of the page to enlarge

This is an amazing Pains Firework poster/folder also found in the cupboard, there is another one to come later, it is for Japanese Daylight Fireworks. Click on it to enlarge, it is a big file, almost 1Mb, but it will print out at A4 and look great framed..and you probably won`t be able to get a copy any other way. As many of you know I am a keen Firework enthusiast. Click here to see more original material on Pain`s Fireworks in 1908.
