The Maxim brothers were two of the most colourful and prolific inventors of the 19th century, who can be said ot have revolutionised modern warfare. Although best known for Sir Hiram's invention of the modern maching-gun, the two brothers were involved in many other fields of work, including explosives, early aviation experiments, gas and electric lighting and even fairground rides, on of which can still be seen at Blackpool Pleasure Beach.
