|A portion of a photo found on IVC then and now (Pinterest), c. 1979|
(Who are these people?)
In the background, middle: the unfinished Clock Tower.
Golly, about 34 years ago
|A portion of another cool photo found on IVC then and now. Circa 1978.|
(Who is this woman?)
|A detail. Check out the apparent structures far in the background, just right of center.|
A shed (or barn) to the left? A barn or home to the right?
|Closeup of the apparent structures. What are they?|
I believe that the property upon which IVC was built was previously owned by the Irvine Company.
A nice little mystery.
|This image is also from "IVC then and now," circa early 80s(?).|
Note the residential development at the top of the photo and the temporaries to the right of the A Quad.
|A detail, concentrating on the A Quad. The approximate "point of view" of the 1978 photo (see above) is indicated with the arrow. The image doesn't seem to solve the mystery.|
|A contemporary satellite photo again showing the A Quad and the approximate POV of the 1978 photograph.|
|And yet another. The Irvine campus was known as Saddleback "North" until it attained autonomy and acquired its present name in 1985.|
During the period from 1979-1985, Saddleback College was called "Saddleback College South Campus."
