Does anyone have any photos of the Cost Plus Imports complex down at Fisherman's Wharf from the mid-late 1960s or early 1970s?

The 1973 Clint Eastwood movie "Magnum Force" has a lengthy scene shot inside the Cost Plus at the Wharf. This Dirty Harry episode includes a mandatory shoot-out sequence, with Harry firing his hog- leg gone down the merchandise aisles resulting in lots of broken glassware and porcelain. (Knowing Cost Plus's retail prices in those days, the damage must have totalled nearly $6 or $7!)
