Fullerton College: A Pictorial History

This is a 1977 shot of Harbor Boulevard in downtown Fullerton, still a popular hangout for Fullerton College students. The Chapman Building (110 East Wilshire Avenue) is on the left, followed by Gold’s Furniture (210 North Harbor) and Roy’s Photographic Service (216 North Harbor). Downtown traffic was still slow enough during this decade to allow for curbside parking along Harbor and Commonwealth Avenues. Many downtown businesses gave discounts to Fullerton College students who had purchased a Student Services Card. Fullerton College students were still employed by downtown merchants on a regular basis, but with the recent construction of nearby Orange County State College (now CSU Fullerton), there was increased competition for jobs.
