For those researching information on the building, the lot address is 50 Church. That may help with more recent historical information but the in order to find older information, particularly about the area, this may help: Duboce Avenue was originally named Ridley St. Duboce ( Colonel Victor D. Duboce) was elected to the Board of Supervisors after serving in the Spanish-American war. I believe the street was renamed just a few years before the building was completed but most information on the area references the old name. Also, I believe that a lot of the records for the lots along Church burned in the fire following the 1906 quake.

: I checked with the San Francisco Assessor's office online database:
: The parcel (0874 003) was built in 1905, has four stories, 78 units, and is all wood frame.
: Another great source to check with is the San Francisco Architectural Heritage group:
