This website is an unofficial and non-commercial fansite for the Seventies' cop drama The Streets of San Francisco. This site was originally set up not long after the first set of official DVDs was released. Following a period of inactivity, it was officially re-launched on July 15, 2013, and the pages are still being added to the various categories.
Browse the site using the nav on the top - there are episodic summaries and screencaps, information on filming locations, video clips and a lot more to come. For the latest updates to the website, please check out the recent blog posts below. You may track all updates made to the website and news on the series by checking out the complete blog.
Please feel free to get in touch in case of any questions, suggestions or just comments.
I have just added a couple of original filming locations and actual photos to the locations page. This time you will find screencaps and corresponding location photos for 'House On Hyde Street', an episode that was supposed to be located on Nob Hill and/or Russian Hill, but was actually filmed on Potrero Hill. For those of you being familiar with San Francisco, the downhill perspectives in the opening scene - as well as throughout the whole episode - immediately revealed the actual location to be on Potrero Hill, of course - an area that was utilized for location filming quite frequently for the series.
As a sidenote, I decided to skip the thumbnails on the locations page, and added larger-sized pictures instead, so you have screencaps and actual location photos side-by-side in a reasonable (viewable) size. :)
I just would like to keep you updated: due to the birth of our second addition to the family in late October, I am quite behind the schedule concerning the latest updates.
I already prepared the addition of the next episode's screencaps and locations info, as well as another addition to the Locations page (for 'House on Hyde Street'). These will be online within the next few days... and I hope I'll be able to keep up the weekly updates soon again.
Stay tuned! :)
I have recently added the screencaps for The Victims to the episodes' page. While on convict labour, the a trio of prisoners simulates an accident, takes a wounded guard hostage and later throws him off the truck. Steve has to leave his new love affair Connie - an attractive female journalist - behind when Mike calls for duty. They meet up at the hospital where the guard is treated due to being in danger of life, checking the prison’s files on the fugitives. In the meantime, the escaped convicts embark on an uncompromisingly trail of violence and murder. Following a hold-up murder in a local apparel store, they kidnap and kill an elderly couple. Steve has to argue with his new about the question if or if not criminals are also victims. Mike, who has anything but comprehension for her point of view in this particular case, lets her come with them to the crime scene where the elderly couple was killed, leaving her shocked and almost muzzled - more by Steve’s unemotional way of working than by the barbarism they have to face. Another hostage-taking and rape are soon on the convicts’ account before police can trace them to a groundkeeper's shed at the San Francisco Zoo.
Locations will follow soon.
As announced earlier - and thanks to the priceless help of fellow fan Liz from the Bay Area - I will extend the locations page by adding a variety of original filming locations and actual location photos throughout the next months. First step is the addition of original filming locations and corresponding actual photos for the season one episode 'Trail of the Serpent', which are now online.
Check 'em out and stay tuned for future additions. :)
You can now access the screencaps for Shield of Honor through the episodes' page. A key witness is being transferred to the San Francisco Hall of Justice in order to appear before a court in a mob trial. Just before reaching the floor, the witness is shot to death in the elevator, leaving the two accompanying cops under a cloud although one of them shoots the hitman before picked up by a getaway car at the rear side of the Criminal Courts building. Stone and Keller team up with Lt. Bondini and Officer Andrea McCormick, who investigated the original case, in order to locate the killer and to identify the inside information leak. For the audience it soon turns out that the getaway car driver, Ted Cullen, is the father of the unborn child of Officer McCormick's younger sister; and so does Andrea McCormick. Facing the quandary she got into, Andrea tries to alert her sister without telling her the truth about her husband. On the other hand, Ted forces her not to report to her superior since he actually got the information on the key witness from her, and he is also very convincing by touching on the subject of her sister's unborn child. Following a short questioning with Andera's sister – who is still unaware oft he things going on - Mike asks Steve, who saw Andrea for a couple of times a few years ago, to set a trap for her.
This episode starts in a van driving over Bay Bridge on its route to San Francisco. Most of the opening sequence was filmed inside the underground car park of the San Francisco Police Department and Criminial Courts on Bryant Street. Steve and Andrea McCormick drive to Emeryville in order to inform the witness' wife about her husband's death; she has an apartment in the Watergate Apartments complex at Powell Street and Commodore Drive. Police locates the withdrawn getaway car down in Visitation Valley, at the dead end of Raymond Avenue. Bondini and McCormick stake out the mobster's mansion at 393 Marina Boulevard (at Avila Street), and finally trace Ted Cullen's van driving to Visitation Valley again, where the injured hitman hides in a condemned house on Hahn Street. Locating this building was quite difficult but there's a short glimpse of a part of Cow Palace in the background when Ted is driving up the street, so I was finally able to identify the street and the location of the (now demolished) house. We are also taken to Andrea Cormick's apartment house at 1100 Gough Street, known as the Carillon Towers, for some exterior filming as well as to her sister's apartment on the lower end of Russian Hill. Mike finally books Ted Cullen in a house at the corner of Duboce and Church (we can see the street signs for a short moment).
