Hey Paul. The debate over "Baker's Beach" versus "Baker Beach" is almost as old and contentious (at least among our history clan) as the number of Cliff Houses that have overlooked Seal Rocks. You found 1911 map on David Rumsey's site with the label "Baker's Beach." Nicely played. Well, I'll see you and raise you. Here's a link to a 1924 map, also on Rumsey's site, with the label "Baker Beach" -- and it was prepared by the U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey. (This could be endless.)
