History on the Internet #3: San Diego 1974


Can you help identify these pioneers? At first we were amazed at the number of girls there but then remembered it was the ’70s and everyone had long hair. Also, maybe it’s just those ’70s fashions, but nerds of the ’70s would totally be Williamsburg hotties today. Finally, notice how slim they are, in a world where high fructose corn syrup didn’t exist hadn’t yet been put into everything under the sun. That didn’t start until 1976 or so.

BONUS: Comic-Con co-founder Shel Dorf’s violent past.

    What’s a “Williamsburg hottie”? If it’s anything like a “Cleveland steamer” I don’t want to hear about it.

  2. Francis says:

    I see skinny people. That was the first thing I noticed, too.

  3. Jim Caldwell says:

    I noticed all the slacks first.

  4. Hmmm. Which is worse, HFCS, or plaid slacks? Tough call.

  5. Well, that group pic shows a lot of skinny *adolescents* and Roy.
