“A view of the Fireworks and Illuminations at his Grace, the Duke of Richmond’s at Whitehall and on the River Thames on Monday, 15 May, 1749. Performed by the direction of Charles Fredrick Esq.” Hand coloured etching showing the Royal Fire-workes and Illuminations in Whitehall and on the River Thames on Monday 15 May 1749. The occasion for which George Frideric Handel composed his Music for the Royal Fireworks. The firework display was for the benefit of King George II of Great Britain to celebrate the signing of the treaty at Aix la Chapelle in 1748 marking the end of the War of Austrian Succession. Unfortunately, during the display, one of the fireworks landed on the pavilion of the Temple of Peace, igniting the several thousand fireworks inside and killing three spectators.

This is a clever map graphic “Fireworks for Cheaters,” for those who want to see the fireworks but avoid the crowds (in the Southern California area).
