Don't think Cases St has ever been on a slope, unless when you're pissed coming out of Coopers.

Superb shop L12, the window was full of amazing products and it was so fascinating when you stepped through the door.

Wasn't it on Dale Street? Did they have another  den in L12 ? Was always a treat to visit, got some Mexican jumping beans in there one time.

Back in the 60's-early 70's it used to be tucked in on the right hand side of Moorfields as you walked up to Tithebarn Street towards Exchange Station, just about where Moorfields Station was later built back then and is now.

I think that photo is of it when it was at that place.

It may well then have moved to Dale Street when the original premises got demolished for the Station construction but I can't confirm.

It was a great little shop for every mischievous schoolboy and prankster.

Showing my lack of age there , I am sure it was on Dale St near the courts in the 80s and 90s. Pranking, wigs and itching powder sadly less in demand these days.

Yes, that's my recollection also. Opposite Municipal Buildings.

That is where I remember it too, when you came off the flyover onto Dale Street, it was on the right hand side. 1970's that would be.

I can remember it being in Moorfields, close to the top on the right side, heading up to Exchange station.

Angelcake has a few photo's that might clear things up...https://twitter.com/angelcakepics/status/1001748061545222144

I've screenshot'ed them and attached below.

The first one shows where I remember the Wizards being, just about where that canopy is on the right hand side looking up to Exchange and it even looks like it might be a school lad in shorts that may well be peering in the window. That's where Moorfields Station now stands

The second shot has some detail about the (original) shop in Moorfields being purchased by the Corpy for the redevelopment in 71 and in the text it also mentions that it then relocated to Lord Street Arcade before moving back to Moorfields in '74 (I think 1924(!) is actually a misprint).

The third shows what I suspect was the 'new' Moorfields location on the other side of the road that some of you remember it being in.

The Mini seems to be an O or P reg, hard to tell, which dates it to mid 70's, so it would fit.

Gully, as far as I can make out the reg number of the Mini is LBG845R which a Liverpool/Bootle plate from 76/77, if my memory serves me right.

The Mini looks like it is suspiciously parked outside of the medical supplies shop which sold gentleman's accoutrements for the weekend. The man who ran it must have been a registered medical practitioner because he wore a white coat, so I've been told.

Frequently.

I just normally get away with nobody noticing.  ;)
