You have to wonder what it was like driving this van up and down the hills of SF...especially the stops at the peaks of hills and the "T" intersections at their bottoms.

It looks like the van body is slipped over a factory Runabout body.

Neat photo, Jay. Thanks!

According to Mapquest there is no J Street in Fresno (at least not now), so they're no doubt in San Francisco. Odd that a S.F. floral shop would be owned by folks in Fresno.

Eh What happened to J street? Did it just disappear in an earthquake?

I went to San Francisco Floral Company's website and sent them a note offering to email them a copy of the picture if they didn't already have it, no reply yet.

I talked to Mr Azzaro at the San Francisco Floral Company today. They have an original of that photo on the wall at their store. They've been in business over 100 years. J Street was renamed Fulton Street some time back.

"Fulton Mall is a six-block pedestrian mall located in the central business district of Fresno, California. The mall runs along historic Fulton Street between Inyo and Tuolumne Streets and is home to a wide variety of shopping, restaurants, offices and public art. The Downtown Fresno Partnership (formerly the Downtown Association of Fresno) [1] is the local business improvement district.

Originally called J Street, it was renamed Fulton Street in honor of prominent local financier Fulton G. Berry after his death in 1910. As part of a major urban renewal effort in the 1960s, Fulton Street was transformed into Fulton Mall under the supervision of pioneering Austrian architect Victor Gruen and American landscape architect Garrett Eckbo. The mall was dedicated on September 1, 1964, to much fanfare.

The Fulton Mall has declined in recent decades and is consistently the subject of revitalization efforts. It was nominated in 2008 to the National Register of Historic Places, but was not placed on the register due to objections from a majority of property owners. However, because of its eligibility, the mall is now listed on the California Register of Historical Resources."

It is astonishing how easily I came to the completely wrong conclusion in my post above! :-)
