Children Waiting to buy Fireworks, July 2, 1939
These kids are deciding if they want smoke (snakes) or explosions (M-80s) for their Independence Day.  The explosive devices seem to be getting most of the attention.
According to the accompanying Minneapolis Tribune article, suburban Minneapolis firework stands were patronized by a customer base of about 50% children (mostly boys aged 6-16) and 50% adults.  The boys traveled to the stands via streetcar and bicycle.  The biggest seller was the flash cracker which measured an inch and one half in length.
