: I'm wondering if between 1880-1910 if business licenses and/or liquor licenses were required for saloon & bars. If so, where would I go to research such a document.

At the San Francisco Public Library History Center:

"The San Francisco Police Department Records include about a dozen volumes that list permit and license applications from 1879 to 1938, mostly for selling liquor, but also for peddling wares and driving various sorts of vehicles. Despite the wide overall date range, there are gaps; most of the record books concentrate around the years 1900-1906. The restaurant license applications consist of a run of four consecutive volumes from 1900-1904."
