This ad for the Johnny Geddes Magic & Fun shop in Meadowside is dated 1981.
Although I can remember the place ok, I was never in it, but I do recall the masks they had in the shop window, including Laurel & Hardy, old hags and a Maggie Thatcher one too!
Johnny Geddes was actually a professional magician who toured regularly around UK as well as places further afield such as America.
Needless to say, he was in the Dundee Magic Circle, before later going on to become president of the Scottish Magic Circle.
He has also appeared on TV a few times alongside the likes of Charlie Drake and Rolf Harris.
In addition, Mr G has written many books on the subject of magic and managed to find time to run the Jay-Gee Variety Agency too.
In fact, oor man of magic had quite a few tricks up his sleeve it seems!
