In 1988 CPCC buried a time capsule to celebrate the school's 25th anniversary. Buried inside were nearly 80 photographs of students, staff and college facilities. The color slides included images from the 1960s, '70s and '80s.

These photos are the second part of a multi-part series. Where known, approximate dates have been included. Titles have been taken directly from notes included in the time capsule. Additional descriptive information is included in italics.

Harry Golden was a resident of the Elizabeth neighborhood for many years. He was well-known for publishing The Carolina Israelite and for his Pulitzer Prize winning book Only in America. In the summer of 1973 Mr. Golden sold the house pictured above to CPCC. Shortly thereafter the house was demolished to make way for a student parking deck. Today a plaque in front of Student Deck 1 marks the spot where the house once stood.
