Great find! I hope you don't mind me adding to your thread, BigKidD, but I went around to some of these sites today to do a little then-and-now comparison. I didn't have copies of the originals with me, so I had to shoot these from memory. You kind of get the idea though.

Southwest corner of Market and Second
1918:


2007:


Market below Beale
1885:


2007:


Market between Drumm and Davis
1895:


2007:


Beale between Market and Mission
1890:


2007 (I'm not sure which side of the street is shown in the original, so here are both sides today):



Note: the old PG&E building (on the left) wasn't completed until 1924, so it not being in the original isn't much help.

Market between First and Second
1890:


2007:


Market and Pine
1890:


2007:


North on Montgomery from Market
1886:


2007:


Post/Montgomery and Market
1900 or 1902:


2007:
