• The tall building is the Mech. Bldg, the one on the right is the Chem. Bldg. the one on the left is the library and the one on the right in the foreground is Fischer Hall. College Ave. still ran through campus I believe but ended on the south at the new US41. When I first arrived at Tech in 1969 US 41 was College Ave. The bypass was being built but was not finished.

The street in the picture was actually between the library and Fisher Hall. College avenue was already closed when this picture was taken. The street in the picture was used for parking and was a dead end.

I believe what you see in this picture is meter parking only and it stopped at Fisher and the library. I attended starting in 1978 and was at Women in Engineering in 1976. College Avenue did not pass through campus then.

When I arrived on campus the fall of 1971, College avenue had already been moved away from mid-campus. Segments of the road still existed and were used for parking. The road you see in the picture went between the Library and Fisher Hall, turned to go on the north side of Fisher (the old College avenue) and then turned to connect back to the new College avenue. I had an office on the second floor of Fisher facing north during the mid-70s and got to watch them rip out the road and replace it with sidewalks.
