i know it has no paragraphs but its not that bad
Royal place parade: I do not see any church in the background of the picture you mention...
Massive central firework: it is an engraving, not representing the exact distance at which the people were. And I have witnessed something similar: last night of the fallas of Valencia, people stand dangerously close to the fallas being put on fire. They were as well dangerously close to exploding fireworks (and it was in 2018). I also do not see how the air is ionized.
1st pic is in German. My understanding, it says: fireworks, with some big (important) blokes, in 1650.
2nd pic: perspective view of the decoration and fireworks, fired from Paris city hall, in the presence of their majesties (I understand the King + Queen) for the birth of Sir the Dauphin (the prince who is next in line for the crown) on 21st Jan 1782.
3rd pic: representing fireworks and other achievements on a place called gué des Celestins and Louviers island, on Monday 2nd Sep 1613, in honour of St Louis day. 4th pic: representing fireworks and other achievements, in Paris, on the river in front of the Louvre, on Sun 25 and Thu 29 August 1613, in honour of St Louis day.
5th pic: great place of Hotel Royal des Gobelins, where skilled men have established manufacturing for the crown furniture, are erecting [something] (looks like a column) in the honour of Mr Brun, first crown painter.
6th pic: representing fireworks fired in front of Paris city hall, on 1st May 1759, to celebrate victory on allied armies in Berghen (sounds like Prussians) by the king's army, commanded by the Duke of Broglie [and then lots of names of people].
7th pic: view of the building, built on the order of [important dudes] from Paris, for the reception of the King and the Queen, with their suite, to see the fireworks fired from the Place de la Greve, on the side of the river Seine, 21 Jan 1782, to celebrate the birth of the Dauphin (the prince who is next in line for the crown) - note: same celebration as the 2nd pic.
8th pic: the public magnificent things from the parade, on the place Royale, on Thu 5 Apr 1612, and the next days. 9th pic: drawing of the magnificent things of the parade, place Royale in Paris, on 5, 6 7 Apr 1612 - note: same as 8th pic.
