Re: Did You Have an After School Job?

My jobs were in the early to mid sixties.
I also delivered flowers for what was then John Rossi Flowers on West Portal Ave. I knew every hospital and mortuary in town. Apropos of the latter, the name of the mortuary generally gives you a good idea of the neighborhood's dominant ethnic group.

I suspect it was easier for a boy to get a job as there was greater variety for which boys would be hired.
