: : 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:

I forgot to mention Mt S Jospeh's merged with St Elizabeths and is on Mason or Masonic, Id have to look it up.
