This place was packed with the most amazing things you could imagine. It had magic tricks, gag tricks, costumes, party favors, decorations, and lots of bits and pieces of things that could only now be found in museums.
John Eggert ran “Johnny’s Playland & Trick Shop”, a shop that sold magic tricks, costumes and novelty items. It was located on Myrtle Street across from the park, at the foot of Clematis Street. Myrtle is now South Clematis. S great place for aspiring magicians to hang out, as Johnny demonstrated the latest magic trick and illusions.
