1989 AFF video

This video was labeled on YouTube at one point as "Dragoncon", but subsequent research has shown it was shot at the Atlanta Fantasy Fair XV in 1989, held in downtown Atlanta at the Hilton & Towers, and it is now labeled as such.

The camera operator focuses on the ladies, but what's striking to me about this video is the astonishing number of middle-aged white dudes in khaki pants wandering around. It's as if they're waiting for somebody to invent IT so they can all get jobs. I am not in this video, but I know people who are.  Thanks to the camcorder operator and to the forward-thinking individuals who archived this piece of history for us!
