Photos: Weird and/or offensive vintage fireworks

The 4th of July is behind us, but not fireworks. We'll likely be hearing explosions throughout the weekend -- even in places that have prohibited fireworks due to the high fire danger. Such bans were rare back in the day, even though a lot of the fireworks made during the first half of the 20th Century look dangerous as hell. As proof, check out the following gallery of fireworks catalog items from a collection assembled at Fireworksland.com.
