Well, I haven't found a picture. But, I did discover a nice article from a 1962 San Francisco Chronicle article (02 March 1962, page 17), which begins:

"Good-by to Oliver Twist
"by Joan Heil.
"How do you turn a cold 51-year-old orphanage building into a cheerful home for 112 girls?
"It's not easy, according to Sister Mary Thomas, new administrator of Mount St. Joseph's Home for Girls, but these days the huge brick edifice on a hill in the Bayview district is a far cry from the Oliver Twist version of orphanage life..."

I checked the 1955 and 1962 City Directories and the St. Joseph's School for Boys & Girls and Mount St. Joseph's Home for Girls was located at 220 10th.(?)

You might also check with the Roman Catholic Archives in Menlo Park to see if they have any information:
