SF Legend, Al Nalbandian on being a street vendor of flowers for over 70 years: “Once you’re used to the outdoors and become one of the street people, like the cops on the beat, cab drivers, newsboys, or street sweepers, you can’t work inside. We didn’t want to become lawyers, didn’t want to be doctors, didn’t want to burden ourselves with the cares of others. We loved the freedom of the street and meeting all the interesting people out there.” - Al Nalbandian. The full series.
