Amen! (about the wonderful smells.) There was the Wellman Coffee plant just north of the Ferry Bldg., Folger's Coffee plant on Spear street, (between Howard & Folsom?) Also the exotic fragrances from the Schilling Spice plant at around 2nd & Harrison, (I think)..Anyway, when you peeled off the eastbound freeway onto the now defunct Embarcadero Freeway, it hit you like a tropical breeze just as you rounded the first "S" bend............
