It looks like he has service ramps on the far side of the garage. I was going to say it is a nice Mom & Pop operation but the building looks only big enough for Pop.
That was originally on the corner of Garnet and Cass, Pacific Beach, Ca.
The house in the background is now the 976 cafe.
Is that the Pacific Beach near La Jolla? If so I lived there during the 1960's and early 1970's. There were a lot more houses there at that time. The famous Dunaway Pharmacy brick building was on the corner of Garnet and Cass. Maybe that gas station might have been on the corner where the Chase Bank is now located?
Thank you for posting this. In his teen years (the '20's), my dad would have stopped there driving his T-turing on his way to the beach with his high school friends, and I grew up a few blocks from there in the '50's.
