: My great grandparents used to live at an address of 60 Boyce in San Francisco, for several decades. ...

Street information can be found in the city directories. According to the 1940 San Francisco City Directory, BOYCE was located "From Laurel Hill Cemetery bet Cook and Parker av south to St Rose's"

If you look at our Cemeteries Map at Google <http://www.sfgenealogy.com/sf/history/hcmidx.htm> you can see the outline of Laurel Hill Cemetery. That would place BOYCE on the current SPRUCE ST. There no specific block number info for COOK and PARKER. However, since it is "From" the cemetery, I would say the numbering started there.

Thus, I would say 60 Boyce is on Spruce St. near Euclid Ave.
