Petulia - O'Dell's Pawn Shop and Ginsberg's Dublin Pub

    In the wee small hours of the morning after the fundraiser and still wearing her evening finery, Petulia is shown, in a flashback, heaving bricks through O'Dell's Pawn Shop window to get at a tuba that happened to catch her eye.

Then ...  Across the street is Ginsberg's Dublin Pub

    Ginsberg's is still there, located at 400 Bay Street at Mason at the north end of North Beach.  This would imply that the pawn shop would be opposite, at 401 Bay Street ...

... from 1968,  but the street directory entry reveals that there was a 12 unit apartment building there, not a pawn shop, so O'Dell's was a studio creation with a virtual address of 401 Bay Street.  Today Trader Joe's is at that location.

... and Now, After all these years Ginsberg's has finally closed its doors.  Here's how it looked in 2015.
