Adapted from the ‘Illustrated Catalogue of Day and Night Bombshells of the Hirayama Fireworks Co., Yokohama, Japan,’ (c.1883). The catalogue introduction states that ‘the illustrations in this new catalogue are inserted merely for the purpose of giving a rough representation of the fireworks, which include many newfangled pieces, it being impossible for an artist to represent the brilliancy and grandeur of the effect produced at the time of the explosion.’ Courtesy Yokohama City Library.
