BRITISH FIREWORK LABEL ART FROM EARLY 1980's

A VIRTUAL FREEBIE SHOP - DOWNLOAD A LABEL AND PRINT OUT AT SAME SIZE - MAKE A REPRODUCTION FIREWORK - PRINT THEM AND FRAME THEM - KEEP OUR HERITAGE ALIVE

I am indebted to John Pitfield , a postal friend of mine for many, many years for most, if not all the material on this page.

All these scans are high quality and most about 80k, only a few are 300k, but if you are a true pyro, that will be ok, also it`s a small price to pay to get these little gems.

If you enjoy these, please share with the world what you have. Please e-mail me first and then send me some scans....not just British items but any items, especially US and any out of the way place, perhaps Russia, Eastern Europe, South America, India or Africa. Or better still, pop a few unwanted ones into an envelope and send surface mail to us...after all you have seen ours, and this way we can show yours to the world. Even if they are common to you, to others, in different countries they will be rare.Even "more better" still send us any dead, toasted or used and fired items, empty boxes or posters, no matter how common or how modern. SEND TO:

Maurice and Steve's Virtual Firework Museum, 7, WOODLANDS LANE, MANOR PARK, PLYMOUTH, PL6 8AS, DEVON, ENGLAND

IN ALMOST ALL CASES, DIMENSIONS OF TUBE ARE GIVEN TO ALLOW ACCURATE PRINT OUT AND TO HELP YOU MAKE A REPRODUCTION....some have been retouched as they were a little toasted, most are untouched, some need to be improved by those with more skill with an art application than me. Unless stated otherwise all are straight card tubes, hidden internal dimensions should not be needed, but if you e-mail me, I will do my best to help you. All items are topped with blue touch paper.
