Legal History & San Francisco -- brainstorming for a nerdy walking tour.

I'd like to design a walking tour in San Francisco to include legal history sites. And use the project as a fun excuse for me to do some legal history research about SF places.
For example, the street address for the laundry in Yick Wo v. Hopkins
. (It's listed by the California Supreme Court in 1885 as 349 Third Street, San Francisco, so I need to figure out whether the street numbers have changed.)
Or, the site of the 1977 sit-ins for the Section 504 regulations
(450 Golden Gate).
Any other suggestions? Sites related to civil rights or early SF legal history are particularly good.
