Actually, I did once spend the night in a charming bed and breakfast in the area called THE EDWARD INN & SUITES. Here's what it looks like from the front of the building on Scott Street today:
And here's what it looked like from the rear of the building just after it was built to house PPIE visitors... only a block away from the Tower of Jewels and the fair's main entrance!
They have another great panoramic image of the fair hanging behind their check-in counter with a little arrow pointing down to the building that says YOU ARE HERE!

One of the Presidio military buildings used to have a wonderful scale model of the fairgrounds though. Don't know if it's still there. A sizeable 15 acre chunk of the Presidio is also now home to George Lucas' LucasFilm, LucasArts, and Industrial Light and Magic complex.
