: Was this business and Horn Bros.Cigars+Tobacco and B.C. Horn Co. all the same business at different time periods....

I looked through the San Francisco City Directories (various publishers including Crocker, Langley, Polk) and came up with this timeline:

1895 Isadore (aka Esidore) Horn, cigarmaker (first mention of him)
1896 to 1907 Horn Bros, included Isadore and David Horn
1908 to 1932 Golden State Leaf House, on 526 and 534 Washington
1933 to 1934 David Horn, leaf tobacco at 526 Washington
in 1935 David Horn, liquors, 1700 Polk

By the way, Isidore's spouse was listed as Estella, and David's as Bessie.

Hope this helps,
