Fireworks SOS !

The museum project team would like to put out an SOS. We are currently trying to find out if there is anyone who may have worked at any of the British Fireworks companies in the past. We would like to know if any archives exist for companies such as Pain's, Standard, Brocks, Excelsior or Astra for instance. Plans are afoot to mount an exhibition of a private collectors archive and the museum would very much like to supplement this with material, especially original firework design artwork, from some of the larger British fireworks companies. Should anyone know of any contacts, please email the museum director Simon Costin.
