UPDATE: The Rockford Files - Episode: Dirty Money, Black Light (1977) & Episode: A Fast Count (1978) - Seaburys College of Barbering - Was located at approximately 350 South Main Street, Los Angeles, CA

  The Seaburys College of Barbering - Was once located at approximately 350 South on Main Street in Los Angeles, CA - The building has since been torn down.
 




ABOVE PHOTOS: are still images from the Rockford Files - "Dirty Money, Black Light" episode.
The same barber shop can be seen in the BELOW PHOTOS from the Rockford Files - "A Fast Count" episode.





UPDATE:
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.

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.

In that same episode, Dirty Money, Black Light , Jim Rockford beats a hasty exit from the boxing gym onto the street from a garage about 15 feet east of the intersection of E 4th St & Werdin Pl, Los Angeles.

In the following link you can see the garage entrance in the left foreground. The key identifier in this shot is the Hotel Barclay in the far background. Its sign with the hotel's name is in the vertical position.

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?

I just noticed that in the episode of Kojak: The Queen of Hearts is Wild ...that the same location is being used at the 15-16 minute mark. You can see the outside of the barber college as well as the stairs that lead to the boxing gym(the same gym used in many episodes). You also get a look at the outside of the building from behind and some other building near the location.
