    There is one on Derby Lane. on the row of shops over the road from the Albany Pub. That looks like a family run shop, plus its been there for years.

    Just up the road from Rathbone Park there was a bakers. It was called Hanrattys. It's still there, but I don't think it's a bakers any more.

    Its the way I wrote it, I meant to ask it of Edwardo, to give us a clue where it was.

    Edwardo, where about was this cake shop ?
    by a cinema, by a school, by a pub ?

    There used to be a Sayers on the corner of the road, by the crossing / half way down.

    Where is this one you are talking about Spike, Mart

    Little Row of shops on Derby Lane. Across road from the Albany Pub.

    There is a Dones Bookies there and its next door to that. The old Post Office was on this row.

    Isn't it called the Derby Lane Sandwich Bar now and it's directly behind the bus stop? I do remember it being a cake shop in the past, although I don't know what it was called.

    I've just found a picture of where it is on wikimedia commons, which seems to be a collection of post box photographs!. It's inbetween Juels & Gems and Betfred.

    Hi Edwardo, it could be the one by St Annes School, Green Lane end of Prescot Rd.

    There was a "Cooksons" shop, but that wasn't a Baker's.
    Cooksons was opposite the Masons pub, then moved to St Oswalds St, it was a clothes shop.

    Was the cakeshop Clooks, not Cooks? My uncle did electrical work etc for them. Not sure if they had a few shops around L`pool.
    My family had printing shop, John Donald`s, in Old Swan, where Pet shop is/was -near Post Office opp Tesco.

    I lived in Gordon Drive,Knotty Ash, 1947-1960. Anyone remember the grass tennis courts in Springfield Park, alongside East Prescot Road railings.

    Yes it was Clooks. There was on Breck rd, corner of Richmond Park, (1960s). I knew the people that ran the shop.

    Yes it's Pets Pantry now.
