Patriots, Fireworks, Safety & Children
Turn of the 20th Century American PostCards

Kids love fireworks and American tradition has promoted the image of children toting fireworks, despite the enormous danger. Was this a way of preparing kids for the perils of war or we making too much of these colorful nostalgic images? Turn of the century public celebrations included marauding bands of mischievous boys carrying guns, firing blank pistols and getting drunk. So much for the gentle good ol' days.
