Also remember Standard Silver Rain too;-a beautiful shower of tailed silver glitter sparks that reached a nice height about 6 or 7 foot high. A stunning firework! It carried on into the BS7114 years where it was given a Cat3 rating and safety distance of 25metres and into the nineties before it faded away along with all the other British made Standard Fireworks. The British made era of Standard was the best even though the fireworks were a little expensive. :shy:

Standard Jet Scream was a fiery red yellow flame followed by two red yellow screaming whistles which slowly rose and screamed loudly fading away at the peak of their flight great piece! :blush:

:blush: I also remember the Standard Jack In The Box;a orangey flame and the odd spark or two followed by glittering balls being ejected upwards and I have a very good recollection of Standard Mine Of Serpents too-a glittering fountain and coloured flame followed by HUGE glittering thick comet tails thrown upward! :)

I would love a fountain like traffic lights today. Wonder why no firework companies make something like it, to my knowledge anyway.

I remember them when I was a little boy. You are right Cossi, wish they were around today. Anyone know when they stopped making them?

i think the traffic light comes down to content in the firework may be wrong but something tells me it's to do with the content within it

Standard Traffic Lights Roman Candle;ah yes, remember this:-flame and a red ball then yellow ball then green ball ejected in the sky. ;)
Wasn't Traffic Lights a fountain Ant?? Or was there a fountain & a candle both with the same livery.

Standard in the early 80's also did a roman candle version of Standard Traffic Lights;I remember this very well indeed! It had the same label as the fountain except with the following instructions "FIX FIRMLY UPRIGHT IN SOFT EARTH, LIGHT BLUE TOUCHPAPER AND RETIRE AT LEAST 30ft UPWIND" and was a fat squat tube with a black ground spike on it. When lit it would do a orange flame (reminiscent of many single and multishot Standard roman candles of the time) then it ejects a red star into the sky followed by a yellow star into the sky then finally a green star into the sky. :cool:
