  Oh probably Adolph Gassers but in all honesty, Michele, you can probably get whatever you're looking for much cheaper by ordering it from BHphotovideo.com or used at KEH.com. Gassers has a number of stores in the city including their main store which is downtown 181 Second St. San Francisco, CA, 94105, 415-495-3852. Good stock of film, paper and chemicals though, a fairly large used equip. section, but if you get serious about something there, haggle with them ALOT.

Personally, I think your time would be better spent down at the Embarcadero (below the Hyatt Regency on Market St.) or photographing the South Side of the Golden Gate Bridge from the Presidio and Marina District, OR photographing from the North Side lookout on the Marin County Side. Bring a jacket and sweater. It's a bit chilly here right about now.
Bon Voyage.

  You might want to try a night shot from Twin Peaks, too. Nobody ever does that anymore. I haven't seen one in years.
