The Rockford Files - Episode: Dirty Money, Black Light (1977) We are now reaching out to actor Craig Wesson for help with this filming location - "Seaburys College of Barbering"

The location of the Barber College is between 3rd and 4th on S. Main Street.
The Barber College is directly next door to the boxing gym in "A Fast Count".
You can see when watching "A Fast Count" that the barber pole sign, green window shade, grey painted exterior are all exactly the same as the shots in "Dirty Money Black Light". Also, you can see the windows in the now 'Dish Factory' on S. L.A. Street are the same as the ones when Angel is stuffing money into his socks...over his shoulder.
The building that houses the Barber College and the Gym is now gone.
Thanks for the site and all the info.

It also appears that the Taxi Company that Becker works for in "The Becker Connection" might also be one door down from the Gym. On the opposite side as the Barber College. Though, this site has that garage on 7th and S. Main.
Might want to check on that one?
Craig Wasson played the bumbling student barber Steve Watson, even cutting Angels' neck a few times with slipped scissors during the haircut at the SEABURYS COLLEGE OF BARBERING. On 5/15/2012 I sent Mr. Wasson a letter via U.S. Mail in the hopes he can help us out on the location of this barber shop.

Our newest filming location challenge! Seaburys College of Barbering. My best guess is that this barber shop was a real location but the name was changed for the filming. Based on some exterior shots of this barber shop shown in this episode, I am guessing that it was once located near the old Los Angeles Downtown area. Some where around all the old hotels.
